Three people were killed in downtown Colorado Springs, Colorado, on Saturday morning before city police officers shot and killed a suspect, reported the sheriff’s office of El Paso County, Colorado.
Police received a report of a shooting about 8:45 a.m. along with a description of a suspect, the sheriff’s office said.

No identities or details were given concerning the people killed or the suspect. “We do not believe there is any further threat to the community,” the department said in a news release.
About 10 downtown blocks were shut down while the shooting is investigated, Jacqueline Kirby of the sheriff’s office told CNN.
No motive was given. The sheriff’s office took over the investigation, as state law requires when an officer-involved shooting occurs. The officers who fired at the suspect have been placed on routine administrative leave.

Obviously these people didn’t smoke enough weed in CO.
Just in time for… Hollow Weenie. NJoy.
There was a reason (motive) for these shootings that they don’t want to tell the public about.
“No identities or details were given concerning the people killed or the suspect.”
When we find out who was killed it will make a lot more sense.
“We do not believe there is any further threat to the community,”

Let us pray the “victims” were communist BAR traitors.
smells like another stab at gun rights…or shot. We all know Bo Bo the sock puppet is building up for the gun confiscation. He espoused that Australia has the best gun ‘buy back’ laws. Thiers’s was more of a mandatory buy back. Also, Bo Bo said he wouldn’t take our health plans, nor our doctors, nor would he mandate we buy health insurance. Look what happened. He did a 180. Doesn’t he always say he’s not going to take our guns? Well, all he’s waiting for the right excuse with all these shootings, mass shootings, hoaxes, ad nauseam. We’ve been down this road before and every time there’s a shooting, no one knows who the shooters are or the victims, and the shooter always ends up dead.
keep your guns clean and your powder dry. If you are able to do so…practice with your guns daily.
