(PUEBLO, Colo.) — The Pueblo Police Department (PPD) arrested several wanted felons Saturday morning on Jan. 14, at a home following reports of suspicious activity.

Shortly before 9:50 a.m., officers were called to a home on the 1100 block of Pine Street after receiving reports of heavy foot traffic in and out of the home and shots fired the previous night.

Arriving officers attempted to contact those inside. After knocking, officers heard the door lock with several people talking and moving around, according to PPD. Eventually, a total of eleven people came outside.
