The El Paso County Sheriff's Office has arrested two men, who first appeared to be victims, in the shooting death of 25-year-old Joshua Fields on April 23.
It was a violent chain of events that left one man dead and two wounded and police say 18-year-old Carlos Olguin and a 17-year-old man are responsible.
Deputies say it started a little after midnight April 23 when they got a call about a shooting on Loomis Avenue on the south side of the Springs. Upon arrival, deputies found a 17-year-old male with stab wounds.
Minutes later, deputies say another call came in about a shooting at some nearby apartments on South Hampton. When they arrived, they found Fields with a gunshot wound. He died at the scene.
After finding Fields dead with a gunshot wound, deputies were called to a third address, on Loomis Avenue, and discovered another party, identified as the now suspect, Carlos Olguin, with multiple stab wounds.
An autopsy revealed Field's cause of death was a single gun shot wound to the chest and the manner of death has been ruled a homicide.
Olguin and the other stabbing victim have since been released from the hospital and were both arrested for murder. Olguin is being held at the El Paso County Criminal Justice Center. He's also being held on a Failure to Comply Warrant out of Las Animas County.
The 17-year-old, who is not being identified due to his age, is also being charged with murder. He's currently in custody at the Spring Creek Detention Facility.
If you know anything about the crimes, you're asked to call the El Paso County Sheriff's office or Crime Stoppers at 634-STOP.
