Bicyclist killed in Colorado Springs shooting rampage was Iraq War veteran
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — The bicyclist who was one of three people killed by a gunman on a street in Colorado Springs on Saturday was an Army veteran who served three tours of duty in Iraq.
Andrew Alan Myers, 35, was a veteran who leaves behind two sons, ages 13 and 11, Myers’ ex-wife Tina Myers said in a GoFundMe post.
Myers was killed Saturday after Noah Harpham shot him, then killed two women on the porch of a sober living home, the Colorado Springs Police Department said. Harpham died during a shootout with police.
Tina Myers says police told her the shootings were random and that her ex-husband didn’t know his killer.
Myers was born and raised in northeast Ohio. The family lived in Germany for nine years after Myers joined the Army.
“After nearly 10 years in the military and with many awards and decorations, Andrew separated from the military and remained in Colorado. I, as his next of kin, and his children want nothing more than to be able to bring Andrew home and give him the proper services, burial, and respect that he deserves,” Tina Myers said in the GoFundMe post.
