COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - One person was killed and two people injured in a shooting at an apartment complex in east Colorado Springs Thursday morning.

Early on, police had limited information for our crew at the scene. The complex is located near Dale Street and Hills Road.

One neighbor, who says he shares a wall with where the incident happened said it was a scary.

“At 5:30 this morning I heard it sounded like door slamming and furniture tossed around and people yelling. Later I heard screaming and then I heard the sirens and that was it. I mean if the bullets had penetrated the wall it could’ve hit me," he said.

A police department spokesperson late confirmed the shooting was reported at 5:30 a.m. and that two injured victims were transported to the hospital with serious and possible life-threatening injuries. Police have not released any identifying information about the deceased victim. There is also currently no suspect information, but police say there is no threat to the community and “all parties are accounted for.”

We will continue to update this story as more information is released to us.
