Crime
Jerenzo Kyles Colorado Springs Police Department

One of the three people accused of breaking into a home, assaulting two children, and shooting at a neighbor in southeastern Colorado Springs last year has been found guilty, according to police. 

Jerenzo Kyles, 24, was convicted on May 22. He was found guilty of second-degree kidnapping, attempted murder, and attempted aggravated robbery. 

The crime happened April 4, 2018 on Wyatt Street, which is just east of Hancock Expressway and South Academy Boulevard. Police said the suspects broke into a home and assaulted two young children. When a neighbor confronted them, they fired shots at the neighbor and sped away. 

The children were hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries. No one was injured by the shots, but a car and several homes sustained damage. 

The court cases against the other two suspects are still pending.
