BOULDER, Colo. (KDVR) — Less than two hours after the Boulder Police Department tweeted on Friday photos of a person of interest in a shooting earlier this week, the person was identified.

“Well that was fast! Not only have we been able to identify this person, but we’ve also found them and are speaking with them,” BPD tweeted.

Police said around 10 p.m. Monday, a woman was shot in the leg in the 1300 block of Canyon Boulevard. When officers arrived, a tourniquet was applied and she was taken to the hospital and later released.
