COLORADO SPRINGS — Colorado Springs Police responded to a reported shooting at Memorial Park Friday night.
The call came in around 8:30 P.M. for shots fired. Police say a group of 50 were at the park for a candlelight vigil to honor a woman who had recently passed away, when an unknown car drove by and began shooting at the crowd.
At least three men have been taken to the hospital; one man drove himself, no word on their condition at this time.
Police do not have a suspect or vehicle description and no one in custody. This is an ongoing investigation.
UPDATE: The death of the woman who was being honored during the vigil does not appear to have any connection to the drive-by shooting, according to CSPD.
