Colorado Springs police are investigating a robbery that occurred on the 900 block of East Vermijo Avenue early Thursday morning at the same time a shot was fired into a home in the area.

Police can't say for sure that the two incidents are related.

A man was robbed by two men wearing hoodies shortly after 1 a.m near East Vermijo and South Institute Street. Around the same time, a homeowner called police after a bullet smashed through her kitchen window.

Police don't have a more detailed description of the robbers and can't confirm that the gunshot was related to the robbery.

Officers are in the area investigating both calls separately.

If you know anything about this crime, you are encouraged to call police at 444-7000 or Crime Stoppers at 634-STOP.
