Colorado Springs gunman dead after killing 3 as he marched down street.

The alleged gunman was shot dead by police outside a Wendy’s restaurant on Saturday after he opened fire on officers in Colorado Springs, the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement. — Four people, including a suspected gunman, died Saturday after a shooting spree that ended in a gun battle on the street between the suspect and police. Authorities said there appears to be no further threat to the community, and Kirby said that aside from the four people killed in the allegedly random shooting, including the suspect, no one else was injured.

Lt Catherine Buckley said officers were responding to a report of shots being fired when they spotted a suspect matching the description of the person they were trying to find. — A man marching down the street shot and killed three people on Saturday, before being fatally shot in a gunbattle with police, authorities and witnesses said.

Abshire said he ran to the street and followed the man and called police. “They yelled, ‘Put the gun down,’ and he turned around, and that’s when they shot at him a good 20 times,” she said. “There was a lot of gunfire.” Buckley said the crime scene covered several major downtown streets.
