ALAMOSA, Colo. — Two people are in custody following a shooting in Alamosa that injured an Alamosa police officer and another man, according to an update from the department's police chief.
"I've worked for this agency for 22 years," said Chief Ken Anderson. "Not once in my life have I ever dealt with anything like this."
Around 4:10 p.m. on Thursday, officers responded to the 1200 block of Denver Avenue for a fight or disturbance.
Almost immediately after they got there, the city said, a juvenile pulled out a handgun and shot a female officer twice. She was flown to a Front Range hospital for care. Anderson described her condition as "stable" and she was communicating which he was a "good sign."
Officers also located a man who had been shot in the same area where the officer was shot. Anderson said that victim, a 41-year-old man from Alamosa was in critical condition as of Friday afternoon.
A juvenile suspect and a second suspect were taken into custody. Anderson declined to say whether the second suspect was also juvenile. No names were provided.
While it is still very early, the district attorney said they are considering charging the juvenile suspect as an adult in the case.
Anyone who has information is asked to call the local Crime Stoppers at 719-589-4111.
