Suspect Wanted In Shooting

By  | 

The El Paso County Sheriff's Office has identified a suspect in the shooting at a Days Inn Sunday evening.

The victim was a 22-year-old man. His name has not been released.

The shooting happened at the Days Inn near Circle and I-25.

Deputies found a trail of blood in the parking lot. The victim turned up later at a gate to Ft. Carson. The victim is a civilian and he was taken to Memorial Hospital. The victim was able to talk to investigators about the shooting and deputies are now looking for 23-year-old Salvadore Pritchett.

He's wanted for attempted first degree murder, among other charges. Investigators say Pritchett should be considered armed and dangerous, and he should not be approached. If you see him call the sheriff's office at 390-5555 or Crime Stoppers at 634-STOP.

Investigators say he may have ties to the Pueblo because he has an active arrest warrant from the Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office for burglary and escape.
