COLORADO SPRINGS - At least two rounds were fired at Colorado Springs officers who were pursuing possible robbery suspects Monday night.

Colorado Springs Police say no one was seriously hurt, but one person is being treated for possible head injuries. The rounds struck marked patrol vehicles.

The incident started just before midnight on Monday, when officers responded to a report of an armed robbery in the 3600 block of Austin Bluffs Parkway.

Officers later learned of a second robbery near East Woodmen Road and Marksheffel Road.

Two people also reported stolen cars in the area during a similar time frame. The suspects in each instance were described wearing similar clothing, according to police.
