Two Colorado shootings leave five injured

Five people were injured following two shootings that appear to have happened across the street from each other in Colorado Springs.

The Colorado Springs Police Department tweeted early Saturday morning that they had received a report that shots had been fired at around 9 p.m. Friday during a carnival at The Citadel mall.  

Once the officers had arrived, two people were taken to the hospital; the police later found out a third victim had been taken to a hospital nearby by family. All three of the victims were under the age of 18 years old.

The police department said the injuries were “serious but non life-threatening.” The police noted that they were working to learn more information about the situation but said “it appears a disturbance between two known groups of people occurred” and “during that disturbance, shots were fired.”

Police said that while officers were handling that shooting, they received a call regarding a shooting that happened across the street at a Boston Market; two people were taken to the hospital.  At the time, police did not know if the shootings were related.

“We do believe that these are isolated and there is no immediate threat stemming from these incidents,” police tweeted. 

In their updates, the police department did not provide any information on the suspects or if they had been arrested. 

The Hill has reached out to the police department regarding the status of the victims and any further information on the suspects.
