3 injured in 2 separate shootings in Colorado Springs

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Three people were injured in two separate shootings on Sunday morning, the Colorado Springs Police Department said.

The first shooting happened about 3 a.m. in the 3100 block of East Dale Street.

When officers arrived, they found two 17-year-olds — one female, one male — had been taken to a hospital by friends to be treated for gunshot wounds. Both are expected to survive.

Then, just after 6 a.m., another shooting was reported, this one in the 2500 block of Verde Drive.

When officers arrived, they found a man with multiple gunshot wounds. He was taken to a hospital and is in critical condition.
