Light snow/rain continue to develop along northern El Paso County, as well as wind picking up in this location. This trend will continue to extend to the south throughout the afternoon hours. Light snow accumulations and poor visibility will be possible for a time this afternoon and evening north of Colorado Springs and south/southwest of Pueblo. Blowing dust will be mostly likely on the Eastern Plains, where a Blowing Dust Advisory is in effect. Bottom-line, your Tuesday will feel (and look) a lot different than the past two days. Be prepared...
Colorado Springs Police shot and killed a man, after he pulled out a gun and pointed it at officers. Police responded to a disturbance call just after 1:15 a.m. Thursday outside a 7-Eleven on the corner of Union and Fountain.
When they arrived, they approached three people in a vehicle. As the men got out of the car, police say one of them reached for a gun in his waistband. An officer grabbed it, but the two struggled over the weapon. Another officer got out a Taser, but the suspect got a hold of that, and used it on the officers. That’s when one of the officers shot the man.
The suspect, 19-year-old James Larue of Colorado Springs, died at Memorial Hospital. Two of the officers suffered minor injuries.
The officers are on routine administrative leave until an investigation is complete.
