LOVELAND, Colo. -- The task force set up to investigate a series of shootings in northern Colorado since April said Thursday it is investigating new leads near Fort Collins-Loveland Municipal Airport.

The task force responded to the 6800 block of Larimer County Road 9 at 8:30 a.m. Thursday and investigators were there to "follow up on leads and tips" that have been received since the investigation began.

No other information was released "to maintain the integrity of the investigation."

On June 23, the task force said a person reported they were shot at on the night of June 3 near Denver Avenue and East Eisenhower Boulevard in Loveland. That was about two miles from where Bill Connole was shot and killed at East First Street and St. Louis Avenue later that night. The person shot at was not injured.

A northern Colorado task force released a sketch of pickup it says is a vehicle of interest in connection to a string of random shootings in the area.

The task force also released the sketch of a pickup truck it said is a vehicle of interest to the Loveland shootings based on several interviews and canvasses.

The task force previously linked the shootings of Milliken woman Cori Romero on Interstate 25 in April and Windsor cyclist John Jacoby in May. Romero was shot in the neck and is recovering. Jacoby was shot and killed while he rode his bike near Windsor.

The task force has not linked the two Loveland shootings with those of Romero and Jacoby.
