COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - The search continues for the suspect after a man was shot several times Tuesday afternoon.

Police say the suspect and victim got in an argument outside an apartment at Willamette and Bennett and continued fighting as the suspect followed the other man into his apartment.

“The argument led to the suspect displaying a handgun and firing multiple rounds, striking the victim,” a police lieutenant said.

The suspect then fled the victim’s apartment. Officers combed the area but couldn’t locate him. As of Wednesday morning, police say an arrest warrant has been drafted for the shooter but did not release any suspect description.

The victim suffered life-threatening injuries and remains in the hospital at last report.

The shooting happened in the Knob Hill neighborhood east of downtown Colorado Springs.
