A disagreement at a party Saturday night turned violent, according to Colorado Springs Police Lt. Howard Black.  

At about 6 a.m. Sunday, police responded to an apartment complex on Verde Drive near Highway 24 and I-25 after reports of multiple shots being fired.  

Black said two men who met at a party had a disagreement that continued into Sunday morning.  

One of the men is believed to have kicked in the door of the other man’s apartment, then the man who lived there shot the man who busted down his door, Black said.  

The intruder was shot multiple times. He was taken to the hospital with critical injuries.  

This shooting is still under investigation.
