Colorado Springs Police have arrested a 17-year-old man in connection with Colorado Springs' latest murder.

The suspect's name isn't being released because he is a juvenille.

Authorities responded to reports of gunshots around 11:10 p.m. Monday night in the parking lot of the Copper Chase Apartments, 2041 Southgate Road, near South Nevada. When police arrived, however, they couldn't find any victims.

About five-minutes later, another call came in, reporting a traffic accident at the 7-11 Store nearby, located at 1802 South Nevada Ave. When officers arrived, they found 22-year-old Matthew Webb behind the wheel of the car with a gunshot wound. He died at the scene.

Another shooting reportedly happened at Airport and Murray. A man claims he was shot in the arm. Detectives are looking into if the two incidents are connected.

If you know anything about either shooting, call Crime Stoppers at 634-STOP. Your anonymous tip could earn you a cash reward.
