A FLASH FLOOD WATCH remains in effect for all of southern Colorado throughout our evening and overnight on Tuesday. Storms will continue to be an issue, capable of producing heavy rain with very slow movement. Storms look to mainly favor north and east of areas like Colorado Springs and the Waldo Canyon area, but storms cannot be ruled out still in this area. The 11 Breaking Weather team will be monitoring conditions closely. This Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through 6pm Wednesday, where another day of thunderstorms is possible. Head to the KKTV 11 Weather Tab for more information on the forecast for Wednesday and beyond.
A man attempting to evade authorities forced a lockdown at an elementary school Thursday afternoon.
The Pueblo County Sheriff's Office says they had gone to the suspect's home in Avondale after receiving a report that he was violating a restraining order from a previous domestic violence case. The suspect ran after seeing authorities.
For more than an hour, deputies searched the area, causing Avondale Elementary School to go on lockdown.
After an hour, the suspect called the Sheriff's Office and turned himself in. He had been swimming in a ditch, and had to be taken to the hospital to be checked out for hypothermia.
School will be operating as normal Friday.
