COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — The El Paso County Sheriff's Office (EPSO) has identified who they said is the "armed and extremely dangerous" suspect still on the run following an officer-involved shooting in Colorado Springs over the weekend.
At 11:57 p.m. Saturday, an officer with the Colorado Springs Police Department (CSPD) conducted a traffic stop near the intersection of Galley Road and Arrawanna Street for a vehicle that had expired license plates.
The man driving the vehicle shot at the two officers, and at least one of the officers returned fire, the Sheriff's Office said.
According to 9NEWS' sister station KRDO, the officer sustained a gunshot wound during that exchange.
CSPD on Tuesday identified the officers involved as Officer Christina Mattox and Officer Beau Becker.
Becker was injured during the shooting but has been released from the hospital, CSPD said. He has been with the department since Jan. 11, 2016
Mattox, who was not hurt, has been employed with the Colorado Springs Police Department since Nov. 26, 2018.
The suspect, identified Monday as Randy Bishop, 35, drove away from the scene and was later involved in a traffic crash at Pikes Peak Avenue and Dunsmere Street, according to the Sheriff's Office. He then ran from the scene and is still at large, EPSO said.
Authorities said Bishop has at least one arrest warrant for the charge of attempted murder. He is also wanted on a case where he escaped custody by a CSPD detective while at Memorial Hospital in Colorado Springs, EPSO said.
EPSO is investigating the shooting.
