COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - A man is expected to survive after he was cornered in a vehicle by two armed suspects and shot point-blank.

Witnesses told police they saw the victim drive into the cul-de-sac on Dickens Drive, which butts up against Meadowlark Park.

“Two males walked up to the vehicle and started shooting into the vehicle. The victim backed into another parked vehicle when attempting to flee,” police said, recalling the bystanders’ accounts.

The suspects reportedly sped off in a dark-colored SUV, while the victim drove to a nearby Kum & Go off Hancock Expressway and Jet Wing Drive and asked people there to call 911 “because he had been shot.” He was then transported to the hospital.

Officers reported finding several shell casings at the scene.

Police have not specified if the suspects and victim knew each other but say it appears to be an isolated incident. Anyone with information should contact the Colorado Springs Police Department at 719-444-7000 or Crime Stoppers at 719-634-STOP. Crime Stoppers tips can be made anonymously.
