Woman Shot, Man Tased New Year's Morning


Police are still working to determine the relationship between a shooting and a later disturbance at an area hospital, which led to the tasing and arrest of one man.

A 23-year-old woman was dropped off at a Colorado Springs hospital early Sunday morning with multiple gunshot wounds. Police tell 11 News the arrestee is not a suspect in the shooting, but have not pieced together why he was at the hospital.

According to police, the man was refusing to answer officers' questions, eventually getting in a physical struggle with one officer. Police were forced the tase the man, then arrested him. His name has not been released.

Police have no suspects in the shooting, but believe she was shot in the street around the 3600 block of E. Fountain in Colorado Springs. Police were searching Sunday for a vehicle thought to be carrying witnesses to the shooting. Both the vehicle and driver were located shortly before 2 p.m. No further information has been released.

For the safety of the victim, police are not releasing the name of the hospital she is recovering in at this time. She is in stable condition.

Anyone with information is asked to call police, or call Crime Stoppers at 634-STOP.

    Anonymous, you are a calling people scum you know nothing about, I don't care where you live, you're no better than the ones you call scum. FYI crime is everywhere, even in your part of the hood. You assume too much not everyone is scum because of the location of a crime,the shoe doesn't fit because I don't wear your size and your feet sink.

    I blame the illegals! If our borders were secure, we wouldn't have the problems in our community that we have now. Secure Our Borders! Yes it's true! Most of the crime in our city IS committed by illegals. Send them all back!

      I don't belive that to be true there MMK. Not all the crime that is going is done by immigrants. An if you have such a problem with our "borders" why dont you go join Border patrol, Instead of sitting around complaining about it.

      Re: Anonymous...Why are you such a mean person? That was a nasty comment. Income does not make a person better! The more you make doesn't mean that your worth also goes up! Believe me! Life does not always go as planned. Crime in this town has hit every area hard. It is horrible the mean things people are saying. I was raised to treat people right and if I don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything. This article was about a young women being shot! It could have been just as easily your loved one. The heartless comments have no place here! While at the same time, you are anonymous! Are you ashamed of your comments? I would only wish, all we had to worry about was grammar. Does the area of town make it less important. There are lots of reasons people live where they do. Who are you to judge?

        I totally agree with your answer to the scum up north. He is to ashamed or scared to put his name.

          She not he and not north either. Don't automatically assume you KNOW me. This is a public article that makes the location of the crime public. If you are too blind to see what's happening in that part of town that isn't my fault. You associated yourself with the word 'scum' and that isn't my fault either, if the shoe fits wear it. Why couldn't you have said to yourself...maybe I should move further out and leave what's here because I AM BETTER THAN THIS? Or...what she said, albeit a bit rude, makes sense? But no, you took offense and that right there is what makes bad neighborhoods bad neighborhoods.
