This morning at approximately 1:25 a.m. the Colorado Springs Police Department was notified of a possible shooting victim that was knocking on the doors of the Bear Creek Lanes at 1232 S. 21st St.
Upon arrival, it was determined that this person had been shot multiple time and he was transported to Penrose Main Hospital. He was immediately taken into surgery. This victim is described as a 20 year old Hispanic male from Colorado Springs.
He informed officers that another person had also possibly been shot somewhere near the area of S. 21st St. and Lower Gold Camp Road. The area was checked and a second victim was located just south of the roadway on Lower Gold Camp Road, approximately ¼ mile west of S. 21st St. This victim was deceased and also appeared to have been shot more than once.
Multiple shell casings were located in close proximity to this second victim, indicating that the shooting possibly occurred at this location.
