Barefoot drive-by suspect found hiding by church

PUEBLO, Colo. (KKTV) - A drive-by shooting suspect was in such a rush to get away from police, he lost his shoes Sunday morning.

Police say they spotted the "shoeless bandit" driving along West 18th Street at 4 a.m. with the headlights off. Realizing he'd caught officers' attention, the suspect tried to make a run for it after ditching the vehicle -- and his shoes -- in a nearby yard.


The barefoot suspect was quickly found hiding by a church a block and a half away and arrested.

Police have not released information on the drive-by the suspect is linked to, only that it remains under investigation.
