COLORADO SPRINGS – Police canceled a shelter in place emergency notification sent out to people living near the 1200 block of Wynkoop Drive.
CSPD said a man at a home in the area shot himself in the foot and will receive a mental health evaluation.
Around 9:30 a.m. Monday officers had their weapons drawn and were shouting at the man to come out from his home, which he did a little after 10 a.m.
The incident created tense moments for neighbors in the area and forced District 11’s Twain Elementary School to enter a lockout. That lockout has since been lifted and no students or staff were in danger, according to D11.
No neighbors or officers were hurt.
