COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Police asked people in the area of Circle Drive and Uintah Street to stay indoors as they searched for a wanted person in the neighborhood Thursday afternoon.

The shelter in place has been lifted, but the suspect remains at large. Police said the man they were searching for was Randy Bishop, who is wanted for several warrants, including attempted homicide of an officer.

Around 12:30 p.m. Thursday, police sent an emergency alert to people living in the area bordered by Palmer Park Boulevard to the north, Circle Drive to the east, Platte Avenue to the south, and Union Boulevard to the west. The alert asked residents to stay indoors with windows and doors locked.

Bishop is described as a white man, about 6 feet tall and 160 pounds. He was last seen wearing a black jacket with a hood, green work pants, and possibly a beanie. If you see him, do not try to contact him. Instead, call 911 immediately.

Pikes Peak Area Crime Stoppers has enhanced the reward up to $10,000 for information leading to the arrest of Bishop.
