COLORADO SPRINGS -

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.

Officers reported the suspects fired shots and they returned fire. No officers were hurt. One of the suspects was arrested and suffered minor injuries.

Officers were in the area of Parachute Circle and Observation Ct. Streets in the area of Aviation Way were closed for several hours while crews used police dogs to sweep the buildings.

Four D-2 schools were on lockout for the police activity in the area. The schools are: James Irwin Charter School, Bricker Elementary, Giberson Elementary, Soaring Eagles Elementary.

The second suspect was not located. Police said surveillance video shows only one of the suspects getting out of the car at the scene of the crash, however witnesses reported seeing two people.
