Colorado Springs police quickly catch shooting suspect Tuesday night
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - A quick response by police Tuesday night to a shooting led to an arrest.
Police were called to the 2600 block of Ore Mill Road after multiple reports of a shooting at about 5:25 p.m. The area is close to Old Colorado City just to the south of Highway 24. At a hotel, they found a man with a gunshot wound, who is expected to survive. Officers were able to quickly get a description of the suspect from witnesses on scene.
Soon after responding to the shooting, police noticed a suspect matching the witness description get into a pick-up truck and drive away. When police tried to stop the suspect, the man reportedly backed up into an unmarked officer’s car before “getting high-centered,” according to police. Getting high-centered means the vehicle was stuck on higher ground than the wheels.
Daniel Schwenk was taken into custody and is facing a charge of first-degree assault.
