String of burglaries, shooting under investigation in northern Colorado Springs


A vigilant neighbor was shot at trying to chase burglar suspects in a northern Colorado Springs neighborhood, near Forest Creek Drive, on Monday. 

According to police, a man woke up around 3:10 a.m. to the sound of his garage being opened, and when he went outside he found a suspect inside a running vehicle parked in front of his home. 

The man then attempted to chase the vehicle, but lost it and returned home. 

The man told police that on his way back home he saw more suspects burglarizing a home on Daydreamer Drive. Once again he gave chase to the two vehicles. 

During this chase the victim said the suspects fired several shots at him, striking his vehicle and causing him to stop chasing after them. 

A later investigation found that a vehicle was stolen from the home after suspects entered the home on Daydreamer Drive. 

Two more burglary related calls were reported near Yellow Tail drive and Rainbow Gulch Trail. 

No suspects were identified.
