2 killed, 2 injured in Colorado Springs townhouse shooting

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- Two people were killed and two others were injured in a shooting at a townhouse complex on Monday night, the Colorado Springs Police Department said.

The shooting happened near North Academy Boulevard and Village Road South in northeast Colorado Springs, police said.

Police were called just before 9 p.m. about gunshots being fired. Police said they were tending to two gunshot victims when someone in an adjacent home at 3835 Village Road South fired from a second-floor window.

No police or first responders were hit, according to a police report.

The two injured people were taken to a hospital with nonlife-threatening injuries. Their names, ages and gender were not released.

Police described the the incident asĀ an active shooter situation and reverse emergency notifications were sent to nearby residents to shelter in place.

Police later entered the second home and found the bodies of a man and a woman. They were pronounced dead at the scene, police said. Neither one was identified.

Police said one person is unaccounted for and might have been in the townhouse at the time of the shooting, but that person is not a suspect.

People who were outside the area were allowed to return home and roads in the area have reopened.

Violent crimes and homicide detectives are investigating what led to the shooting.
