Four people are dead, including a suspected gunman, following a shooting spree in downtown Colorado Springs.
"We do not believe there is any further threat to the community," the El Paso County Sheriff's Office stated in a release.
Colorado Springs Police Department Lt. Catherine Buckley says officers were responding to a report of shots being fired Saturday morning when they spotted a suspect matching the description of the person they were trying to find. Buckley says the suspect opened fire, and police fired back.
Buckley says the crime scene covers several major downtown streets. Those streets have been shut down while investigators try to figure out what happened. No details were available on the other victims or how they died.
Buckley says the investigation of the police shooting has been turned over to the El Paso County Sheriff's Office.
El Paso County sheriff's spokeswoman Jacqueline Kirby says there are at least three crime scenes.
