The Pueblo Police Department says there was a shooting Thursday in the streets of Pueblo.

Pueblo police say the shooting happened at 16th Street and Reading around 11:30 a.m. When officers arrived, they discovered a 17-year-old man had been shot once in the left leg. The victim told police he and a friend were walking from a girlfriend’s house when two men pulled up in a car, stopped and confronted the two about being on “DUKE” turf.

The victim said the two exchanged words before the driver pulled a semi-automatic handgun and shot him in the leg.

Detectives recognized the description of the shooter and car as being 32-year-old DUKE gang member Phillip Patrick Saldana. The victim later identified Saldana from a photo line-up.

Detectives obtained an arrest warrant for Saldana for Second Degree Assault. Police have recovered the car that was driven at the time of the shooting, a Chevy El Camino, but they are still searching for Saldana.

The victim was treated and released from Parkview Hospital.

    let me start by saying my husband is innocent and would never do such a thing to anyone. and as for bravo he has his wires crossed and don't know what he's talking about! my husband loves me & our kid's & the rest of our family. so before all of you start judging people get your facts straight and know what you's are talking about before you open your big mouths! and like the bible say's thou who HAS NOT sinned may cast the first stone into the sea and i know all of you's are sinner's. and one more thing about bravo he must feel like a real man saying bad things about disable childeren's father. so why don't you people comment about that!

    I love these comments! Colorado Springs is mostly a beautiful city, minus theses types of losers and the graffiti that has been showing up everywhere. Instead of sending losers like this to jail and us paying for them to be tere, lets send them to war when they can make some use of themselves. What is the purpose of being in a gang? If you want to live this type of life, move to East LA and quit ruining our beautiful city!

    all gang members should lined up and shot in the freaking head. What a bunch of jobless losers on drugs and drinking their forties, and the stupid chics that like gang members should be lined up and shot too. They shouldn't have the ability or choice to procreate either. Bunch of punk losers! GET A LIFE & GET A CLUE!
