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. If you have any information that may help investigators. Call the Sheriff's Office at 390-5555. You can remain anonymous and call Crime Stoppers at 634-STOP.

    Even if these guys were shot up by gang members that doesn't mean they, themselves were. I know I have never been involved in a gang but have been shot at while at a house party when in high school by gang members.. these guys seem to crash parties and start trouble but it doesn't mean the people at the parties or who threw it were in a gang.

    I taught at Thurston's middle school and I am praying for him and his family. As far as staying on the southside where they belong, really? Seriously? Get over yourself, Ted.

    In life does it matter what color your skin or your cloths you wear. make you in a gang. because the child who just killed her self was not in agang and she lived in a really good area and did any one say those kids who was picking on her was in agang lets justget our facts right before pointing the fingure ok..

    Ted- How on earth can you say "hopefully they stay down in the south part of town where they belong"? What kind of ignorant idiot are you? Do you think that only thugs and gangsters are in the souththern part of our city? Get off your high horse and open your eyes. Your last name isn't Haggard by any chance is it? We both know the wonderful and wholesome reputation that he (or you) have brought to this city (especially the northern part).

    the bible speaks clearly of capital punishment. if these punks think they can break into someone's life and start rearranging things well.. if they like doing things this way they shouldn't mind being shot on site.this isn't an eye for an eye, it's evening the tables, saves poice work and assumes personal responsibility for self preservation
