COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - Colorado Springs police are investigating a shooting in broad daylight Saturday afternoon in the parking lot of a busy shopping center.

It happened at a pet supply store near the King Soopers at Austin Bluffs and Academy. Police say they got a call about two men fighting there just after 1 p.m.

Detectives say one man shot the other and then took off before officers got to the scene. They say the victim was taken to the hospital, but he appears to only have minor injuries.

CSPD is investigating what led up to the shooting. They say it’s possible it started with a road rage incident.

On Saturday night, police told 11 News they found the suspected shooter, but he has not been arrested yet. They say the incident is under investigation and they need to talk to more people before determining if charges will be filed.
