On Saturday, April 02, 2022, at approximately 6:03 PM, the Colorado Springs Police Department (CSPD) communication center, received a call for service regarding a shooting in the 2500 block of Astrozon Circle. Officers responded to that location and learned that an adult male suspect had fired several shots into an occupied dwelling. The home and its occupants were known to the suspect. An occupant of the home fired back at the suspect, who then fled from the scene on foot. Associates of the victim then began following the suspect in their truck.
Minutes later, CSPD several calls for service were received in the 2400 block of Barkman Drive about another shooting. The suspect in the initial shooting was located by the truck associated with the victim from Astrozon Circle. The suspect fired his weapon at the occupants of the truck, who then used their vehicle to run over the suspect.
