EL PASO COUNTY, Colo. (KKTV) - Two men are facing a slew of charges in a shooting at house party over the summer.

Early in the morning of Aug. 23, El Paso County sheriff’s deputies and Fountain police were called to a shooting in a home in the 20000 block of Longhorn Point near the Pikes Peak International Raceway. They found three people with gunshot wounds.

Meanwhile in Pueblo on that same early morning, police were called to a local hospital around 2 after three shooting victims showed up there. Pueblo police later determined these victims had come from the same shooting in El Paso County, bringing the total number of victims to six.

“Officers were able to learn that the incident occurred in El Paso County and are investigating,” Capt. Tom Rummel said.

Tuesday, the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office announced two arrests in the shooting. Alejandro Barcelo and Jontrell Lockett face charges of first-degree assault, illegal discharge of a firearm, and prohibited use of a weapon. Barcelo also faces charges of attempted second-degree murder.

It’s unclear if one or both suspects were injured in the shooting.
