Colorado Springs Police: 2 dead near Hopeful Drive, homicide investigation underway

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- Two people were found dead Wednesday morning and the Colorado Springs Police Department is investigating the incident as a homicide.

Officers are at a scene on Hopeful Drive, which is just south of Austin Bluffs Parkway near Academy Boulevard.

CSPD said a person called police around 8 a.m. after returning home and finding their two roommates dead. The roommates were a man and a woman, but their identities haven't been released.

Police said the two people had gunshot wounds, but their exact causes of death will be determined by a coroner. CSPD said at this point it's too early to determine whether suicide is a factor in the incident.

CSPD says this "appears to be an isolated incident" with no threat to the public.

We have a crew working to get more information, check back for updates.

  1. Oh boy, now we can have unknown serial killers just like the big ol’ cities too!

    Pairs of people are dying of gunshot wounds with no witnesses, and we are expected to believe it is “an isolated incident”?

    1. That’s way out on the limb. They don’t even know if it was a murder/suicide and you are throwing out the “serial killer” bit. Best put COVID-19 on the death certs to get more money for the state.
