Police are investigating after witnesses reported a shot being fired during a fight near a southeastern Colorado Springs school Wednesday evening.
Police said around 6:10 p.m. Wednesday, they got a report of a shooting near Jack Swigert Aerospace Academy, which is in the area of Bijou Street and Murray Boulevard. Police later determined the incident didn’t happen on school property, and was not associated with the school.
Witnesses told police several young men had gotten into a fight, and some of them had damaged a car, which then left the scene. Witnesses reported hearing one gunshot during the fight, but police did not find anyone who had been shot at or hit.
Police found the damaged car and arrested one of the occupants on an unrelated warrant. Police said it’s unclear whether the people in the car were victims or suspects.
