The El Paso County Sheriff's office is investigating a homicide in a neighborhood to the southeast of Colorado Springs. Deputies have blocked access to Shining Star Drive, near the intersection of Marksheffel Road and Drennan Rd.

One adult is dead at the scene. Deputies will not comment on whether the victim is a male or female.

But at this time they say no one is in custody and there is no threat to the public. We're also told everyone in the home at the time of the shooting knew each other, meaning there were no strangers in the home at the time.

A spokesperson for the sheriff's office tells News 5 the first 911 call came in around 2 a.m.

The home on the quiet street has children's toys and bicycles in the driveway.

Below: Google map of the street; the actual address of the investigation has not been made available.
