PUEBLO, Colo. — The Pueblo Police Department (PPD) is investigating a shooting, which happened over the weekend near the Highland Park neighborhood. PPD said a teen suspect has been arrested, and that during the incident a family dog and woman were shot.

According to police on Saturday, Sept. 24 at around 10:30 p.m., officers were called to the 1200 block of Taylor Lane, on reports of a shooting, which is between Pueblo Blvd. and Vinewood Lane. Dispatch relayed to officers that there was a loud disturbance in the background and a person was shot in the chest.

Upon arrival, police discovered five people at the home, including a woman who was suffering from a gunshot wound to the chest. The woman was then taken to the hospital and treated for her injuries.

The preliminary investigation found that there were several people drinking alcohol inside the home when the shooting happened. Police then discovered an argument ensued between two men at the home, which led to one man pulling out a handgun and shooting the family dog.
