Colorado Springs Police have not released the identity of the victim shot several times during the event. Even on the day of the shooting CSPD was confident they knew the suspect's identity due to several witnesses at the scene.

The 31-year-old victim continues to recover from his wounds. Investigators referred to the crime as "heinous" due to the significant risk posed to bystanders and children attending the festival.
