Just before 1 p.m. Monday, the sheriff’s office was called to a report of gunshots near the town of Westcliffe, which is about 80 miles south of Colorado Springs.
Twenty minutes later, a SWAT team showed up, and people in the area were told to stay inside while the search for the suspect went on. The order to stay put was lifted at 8:13 p.m.
The killing happened at 173 Rocky Ridge Road, in the woods next to a property line, according to the sheriff’s office. There were no other information given.
Custer County Coroner Brad Baltzly told NBC News affiliate KOAA in Pueblo, Colorado, “When we went in, we could see the cabin above us. We didn’t know if we were going to take fire from the cabin.”
The woman who was hurt was taken to the hospital by Baltzy and his partner.
