COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) - One person was killed and another injured in a shooting Wednesday evening at a park on the east side of Colorado Springs.

According to CSPD, they received a call for a shooting just before 5pm at High Meadows Park on Ashby Field Drive.

The park is adjacent to Springs Ranch Elementary School, not far from the intersection of Peterson and North Carefree.
