El Paso County deputies have taken over an investigation of a shooting that Colorado Springs Police now say happened in the county outside of the city.

The person who was shot is now in the hospital, that person’s condition is not known at this time.

Authorities said they don’t know exactly where the shooting took place, but it wasn’t at the Kum and Go gas station off of the Hancock Expressway where the victim ended up.

Deputies said they’re getting inconsistent stories in their investigation, which is slowing their ability to get information about a possible suspect.

At first, Colorado Springs Police investigated the shooting, where they were set to provide an update near the intersection of the Hancock Expressway and S. Academy Blvd.
