Colorado Springs Police are searching for a suspect in a shots fired and home invasion Friday morning.
The incident started with a home invasion on North Weber. Police said at least one shot was fired and someone was hurt in what became a physical confrontation with a homeowner.
Police said there were two suspects involved in that incident and they got away in a stolen car. That vehicle was then involved in a hit and run crash involving two other cars near the Colorado Springs Airport. The suspects ran from the crash, but the incident didn't prompt any delays or issues at the airport.
