Neighbors react to drive-by shooting in southeast Colorado Springs complex

Copper Creek Apartments drive-by shooting

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- There are questions and some confusion in a Colorado Springs neighborhood after a drive-by shooting left apartment walls and cars pierced with bullet holes.

Both the Colorado Springs Police Metro Crime Lab and investigators returned Friday morning to try and learn why violence broke out Thursday night.

Many neighbors were witnesses to the drive-by and spoke with us minutes after it happened.

"And for like a quick two seconds, I saw a car drive by with guns in the air, so I hid, then I heard tons more shots," said Cris Noll who lives at Copper Creek Apartments, where the shooting took place.

He says he heard about 20 to 30 gunshots and knew immediately what they were. His neighbor, Amanda Murphey, says she heard them too.

"It was a lot and it was confusing, it scared my dog but I didn't know if it was fireworks or not so me and my fiancé kind of ignored it," she said.

Police say a car full of people pulled into the complex and got into a shootout with a group standing in the parking lot.

"Over there was completely roped off and over near the park as well. There was a car and all the windows were completely shot out and there were cops, fire trucks, ambulances," said neighbor Rachel Shurgot.

One car with broken windows and blood in the driver's seat was found abandoned on the other side of the complex.

"It was definitely scary, a little bit unsettling because I live alone. So definitely a little bit terrifying," Shurgot said.

Police have reported no arrests yet, but say they've spoken with several people involved.

    1. You are more than welcome to leave if you don’t like it… I hear Venezuela is looking for people like you. I seem to remember another individual that acted just like you in the past… Their name was Mav… Any relation?

    2. Hey, where were you last night? Your sister was looking for you. She told me a great story about how you lost your virginity to your dog? Is that true Steve? You lied to me. You said you lost your virginity to your sister! Oh, my mistake; I figured it was your sister when you said you lost it to a bi@#h. I feel like a ninny muggins. Oh well, I won’t tell anyone.

    1. No it’s not Trump’s America the southeast part of Colorado springs has been a ghetto for 30 years. Has nothing to do with Trump it has to do with the people that live in the ghetto that won’t take responsibility for their actions. it starts with not having a job that provides food and housing for your family. And guess the race of most of the race of people in that part of town? That’s where your problem is at not Trump.

    2. Oh yes, this never happened before Trump you ignorant tool! I guess I can blame Chicago deaths on Obama then too. Sorry you can’t blame neighboring states “lose gun laws” because they don’t have the Violence like every liberal city.
