A third victim went to the hospital to seek treatment later that night. A fourth person, a teen girl, was not shot, but was considered a victim in the incident. 

The suspect, a teen boy, was arrested Monday at a home in Colorado Springs. He has been booked into the Spring Creek juvenile detention center.

The suspect, whose name is not being released because he is a juvenile, is charged with four counts of attempted murder and two counts of assault.
