WIDEFIELD, Colo. (KKTV) - A 14-year-old is in custody following a shooting in Widefield Tuesday night.

Authorities believe the young teen shot a man in the 6900 block of Caballero Avenue. The neighborhood is just southwest of Fontaine Boulevard and Fountain Mesa Road.

“About 9:47 tonight, our communications center received a call from a shooting,” El Paso County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Jacqueline Kirby told 11 News. “When deputies arrived on scene, we did have an adult male with a gunshot wound.”

The suspect reportedly fled the scene. He was captured Wednesday afternoon without incident. The victim was rushed to the hospital with life-threatening injuries. The relationship between the victim and suspect was not shared by authorities.

The suspect is facing charges including attempted first-degree murder. He is not being publicly identified because of his age.
