Shootout between bandanna-wearing suspects investigated

July 8, 2020 GMT

FOUNTAIN, Colo. (AP) — Police in southern Colorado are investigating a shootout between people in two cars who were all reportedly wearing bandannas.

There were no known injuries in the shooting that happened at around 7 p.m. Tuesday on a main thoroughfare in a residential area in Fountain, about 10 miles (16 kilometers) south of Colorado Springs, police spokesperson Lisa Schneider said Wednesday.

The four men suspected of being involved left before officers arrived, but multiple shell casings were found, she said. The men have not been found, and it’s not known why they were wearing the face coverings, she said.

Police say shootings are rare in the city of about 26,000 people. However, two teens were wounded in a shooting during an alleged drug deal in late May outside a convenience store there.

Some cities across the country are seeing a surge in shootings, but experts say the increase can’t easily be explained.
