The search is on for two men reportedly involved in an early morning shooting on Venetucci near Cheyenne Mountain Boulevard.

Police say that the victim, a 23-year-old male, was walking down Venetucci with his girlfriend when the suspects approached in a black hatchback. Some words were exchanged and then fifteen shots were fired, two of which hit the victim.

The victim's injuries were not life threatening and he managed to get to the parking lot of a Target store to call for help.

The girlfriend was scared, police say, and unable to provide a detailed description of the two suspects. So far, they're only being described as black men. They do believe, however, that the black hatchback drove southbound away from the scene.

Crime lab and K-9 units are investigating and searching along Venetucci, where the shooting took place.

      I agree all black people aren't thugs, but many people are just looking at statistics. There are good black people and there are good white people and good people of all races. If statistics showed green and blue people commiting violent crimes then I'm sure people who were not green and blue would have an issue with them. I'm color blind when it comes to crime, prosecute or do away with all regardless of race!

      You are obviously white, why do you feel the need to "label" your husband as a black man? Do you want a badge or a chest to pin it on? Hey all, this is my black husband and guys, this is my white(or whatever race you are) wife. Talk about racial, look in the mirror fool!
