    4 dead, including suspect, in Colorado Springs shooting
    (CNN)Three people were killed in downtown Colorado Springs, Colorado, on Saturday morning before city police officers shot and killed a suspect, reported the sheriff's office of El Paso County, Colorado.

    Police received a report of a shooting about 8:45 a.m. along with a description of a suspect, the sheriff's office said.

    Police encountered the suspect at Platte Avenue and Wasatch Street, The suspect fired multiple shots, and police returned fire and killed the suspect, the sheriff's office said.

    No identities or details were given concerning the people killed or the suspect. "We do not believe there is any further threat to the community," the department said in a news release.

    About 10 downtown blocks were shut down while the shooting is investigated, Jacqueline Kirby of the sheriff's office told CNN.

    No motive was given. The sheriff's office took over the investigation, as state law requires when an officer-involved shooting occurs. The officers who fired at the suspect have been placed on routine administrative leave.

    Colorado Springs, with a population of about 445,000, is located at the base of Pike's Peak and is home to the U.S. Air Force Academy.

    you know what dawg, I'm coming to the realization that this is just the price we have to pay to live in this country. If it was up to me, I would regulate the shit out of gun sales, and restrict access as much as possible. But I realize that my point of view is just that, and that many, many others feel very strongly the other way. So, there doesn't seem to be any chance of compromise so we just need to keep moving forward and hope today's not the day you draw the short stick and have some psycho asshole shoot you or one of your loved ones. BTW, I happen to actually live in Sandy Hook, Ct. , less than a mile away from the school shooting. That just wasn't our day, I guess.

    Will the justice department investigate the evil police that didn't bother to apprehend the suspect safely? Fucking pigs are racist!

    They are pieces of shit. Front end bushings fall apart in 10k miles, body panels rub, heat and a/c might work or it might not. I miss the Crown Vics. The Chargers do look the part but are crap.

    Well yea. It would be nice if one of you guys was around in one of these situations to prove the point. I have mine in the car when I travel into a couple of the shitty cities I haved to. I wouldn't hesitate to whack a car jacker.
