COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - A dangerous situation was diffused Monday evening when a barricaded suspect surrendered to police.

Officers had responded to the Greentree Village Apartments off North Academy and North Carefree hours earlier for a domestic disturbance and allegedly learned the suspect had threatened to shoot police if the victim reported the incident. He was holed up in the apartment when police pulled up.

The situation triggered a three-hour shelter-in-place order for neighbors while officers tried to bring about a peaceful conclusion.

“This is the Colorado Springs Police Department with an emergency message. Today is 08-08-2022. There is police activity related to a barricaded suspect in the area of 3550 N Carefree Circle. You are asked to stay indoors; please lock and stay away from windows and doors. Please stay out of the immediate area until further notice. CSPD will send an all clear message when appropriate.”

Police, SWAT, drone operators and K-9s swarmed the scene for hours while trying to convince the suspect to comply with orders and come out. Around 7:45 p.m., more than five hours after police first arrived on scene, the suspect finally did so, exiting the apartment and turning himself over to police.

The suspect has been identified as Jerry Hoshour. He faces charges of attempted first-degree murder, among other things.

No injuries were reported to any law enforcement or civilians.
