Extra security in place at county buildings in Colorado Springs after alleged harassment

There is heightened security at El Paso County office buildings across Colorado Springs.

On Friday 25-year-old Jessica Tuckness and 35-year-old Burnest Johnson went to the Department of Human Services office after hours, wanting to speak to a case worker about a child custody case. A security guard informed them that the office was closed and the couple was turned away.

A short time later police responded to shots fired in the parking garage of that building at the Citizens Service Center off Garden of the Gods Road. A DHS worker reported finding bullet holes in her car.

Johnson and Tuckness were arrested Monday on suspicion of assault and harassment. Both have since bonded out of jail but police consider them armed and dangerous.

They're due back in court next week; county workers say the extra security is to make sure the two don't enter a county building without a security escort.
