COLORADO SPRINGS – A juvenile suspect wanted in connection to a shooting in December at the Citadel Mall is now in custody, according to CSPD.
On Dec. 18th, 2018, officers with the Colorado Springs Police Department responded to the Citadel Mall for a reported shooting.

The next day, a juvenile male came to a local hospital seeking treatment for injuries suffered during the shooting.
The two victims found on the day of the shooting, who were adults, were listed as in serious but stable condition. All three survived their injuries.
