Homicide investigation at Squawbush Ridge Grove home in Colorado Springs

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) - A Fort Carson sergeant was arrested Saturday morning after allegedly shooting and killing a woman in southeast Colorado Springs, according to the El Paso County Jail.

Police were called to the shooting at a home on Squawbush Ridge Grove, off South Circle, around 1:00 a.m. Saturday. They say the woman was dead when they got there.

Dermot Blake, who lives at the address, was booked into the El Paso County Jail around 10:00 a.m. for charges of first degree murder and child abuse without injury.

Fort Carson confirmed Blake is an active duty sergeant on the military base, but would not give KRDO a statement on the situation.

Police say several other people were inside the home during the shooting, but they believe they have everyone involved accounted for.

    85,000 plus dead due to COfluVID and his failure to create a vaccine or implement his “Plan”!
    Now he has turned our “White Supremest” (Supposedly) against civilians! I can’t want to see this Privileged White Radicals mugshot! Can’t you?

      1. yes, he is.
