CSPD seeks man on sports bike in relation to officer's fatal crash

Colorado Springs Police are seeking help from the public in finding a black male who was riding a black sports bike in the area of Austib Bluffs Parkway near Barnes Road and Stetson Hills Boulevard between 2:00 and 2:30 Tuesday afternoon.  Police say the rider was wearing grey shorts and a black "motocross" style jacket.  Police are only saying they "would like to ask this individual questions."  Some witnesses who have spoken to News 5 say they saw Officer Matt Tyner pursuing another motorcycle at the time of his fatal crash at Austin Bluffs and Silver Drive Tuesday afternoon.  Police have not confirmed whether or not Officer Tyner was actively engaged in a vehicle pursuit at the time of the crash.

If you have any information that can assist CSPD in this phase of the investigation, call 444-7000.
