Investigators in southern Colorado are still looking for the man, who they say, shot two other men early Sunday morning.

11 News has now obtained the 911 recordings from the moments right after the shots were fired.

"Somebody did get shot, they're carrying somebody, hurry," said a 911 caller. In less than 10 minutes, at least 11 different people called 911.

"There has been gunshots," another neighbor said. "I just heard like 20 gun shots go off, and there's a bunch of screaming."

Investigators with the El Paso County Sheriff's Office say 20 to 25 rounds were fired just after 3 a.m. Sunday morning.

"A couple of town homes were hit, several vehicles were hit," said Joe Breister, El Paso County Sheriff’s Office’s Chief of Law Enforcement. The Sheriff’s Office believes gang members are behind the shooting, which they say can make the investigation more difficult to solve. "It's kind of like a code of silence amongst the gang; they refuse to cooperate, for the most part, with law enforcement,” Breister said.

The shooting happened in a town home complex near Constitution Ave and Marksheffel Rd. Cops say there was a house party in a town home there, then an argument started in the parking lot.

Investigators say the two men shot are 20-year-old Thurston Livingstone and 26-year-old Christopher Campbell. Christopher has already been released from the hospital, but Livingstone is in critical condition.

Detectives are looking for several men with gang ties. One, they say, goes by the name "Baby KC" another goes by "Menace". No names were given for the third suspect.

Investigators say they have a suspect and are working on an arrest warrant. But they haven't released any details about who the shooter might be.
