2 triple shootings, fatal hit-and-run reported within hours in Colorado Springs

No arrests have been announced in either shooting.

KUSA - Police in Colorado Springs responded to two triple shootings and a fatal hit-and-run overnight Sunday.

The first shooting happened just after midnight on the 3800 block of Soft Breeze Way. Two men and one woman were shot at a house party where there were more than 100 people in attendance, police told KOAA.

Police say two of the victims were listed as critical and stable, and the other is listed as serious and stable, but did not specify which was which.

Just three hours later, three more people were shot -- one fatally -- at a scene just three miles away from the first shooting at the 4400 block of Austin Bluffs Parkway. One juvenile male died from his injuries, one juvenile male is listed as critical and stable, and one juvenile male is listed as serious and stable, according to CSPD.

Both investigations are in the early stages, and police have yet to determine a motive for either shooting. Names or ages of anyone shot have also not been released, and police haven't indicated the scenes are connected. 

Another person was killed just before 12:30 a.m. after a hit-and-run involving three pedestrians at Austin Bluffs Parkway at Stanton Road. Police say the three people were crossing the road when a light-colored full size truck hit two of them, killing one and injuring the other. The third pedestrian was not hurt.

The vehicle left the scene, but has since been found by police. The driver has been identified, but a suspect name has not been released to the public.

Anyone with information about any of these crimes is asked to call the Colorado Springs Police Department at (719) 444-7000; or if you wish to remain anonymous, you may call Crime Stoppers Tip Line at (719) 634-STOP (7867) or 1-800-222-8477.
