On Friday, June 4, 2021, at approximately 8 P.M., an officer with the Colorado Springs Police Department contacted two suspicious motorcycles in the parking lot of 3010 North Nevada Avenue. During the contact, one of the motorcycle riders fired a weapon at the officer, striking him at least one time. The suspect then fled the scene, while the other motorcycle rider remained. The officer was not able to return fire and was transported to a local hospital where he remains in stable condition.
Detectives from CSPD’s Homicide/Assault Unit responded and assumed responsibility for the investigation. This is being investigated as an attempted homicide of a police officer. As the officer did not discharge his weapon, this will not be investigated by a deadly force investigation team (DFIT) but will be handled by CSPD
