Police have identified the victim of a deadly shooting in Colorado Springs as 18-year-old Demetrius Binion. They say he was living in the Springs, but was originally from Chicago.

An autopsy shows he died from a single gunshot wound to the chest.

Police were called to the Shannon Glen Apartments on North Murray Boulevard shortly before 1 a.m. Sunday on a report of shots being fired.

Officers found Binion's body in an apartment. They also searched nearby bushes and parked cars for possible evidence.

Authorities have not released any details about what may have led up to the shooting. They are still looking for suspects.

If you have any information, please call Crime Stoppers at 634-STOP. You don't have to give your name, and you could earn a cash reward.

Binion's death is Colorado Springs' 12th homicide of the year.
