COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - Following an exchange of gunfire between authorities and a bank robbery suspect, a standoff was taking place at a Colorado hotel on Thursday.

“At approximately 10:45 a.m., GVPD officers responded to the Key Bank, located at 9250 E Arapahoe Road, for a report of a bank robbery,” part of a tweet by the City of Greenwood Village reads. “Upon arrival, contact was made with the suspect resulting in an exchange of gunfire. “The suspect fled on foot and was chased by the officer. The suspect was seen running into a nearby hotel. Officers have surrounded the hotel and are attempting to make contact. A reverse 911 was activated.
