PUEBLO — A 13-year-old is in custody and Pueblo police are looking for a second suspect after officers were called to the scene of a possible drive by shooting.

According to their Twitter, this happened around 11:25 p.m. Friday in the 900 block of E. Routt Avenue.

Police said that when an officer arrived, the juvenile ran from the scene. Officers later caught the suspect, who police say is a 13-year-old reported runaway, about a block away.

According to officers, the juvenile was carrying a loaded .357 magnum revolver. He did not attempt to use it and was taken into custody.

Pueblo police tweeted the people who called officers to the scene said they heard knocking on their window and saw a male with a semi-auto pistol, along with the 13-year-old juvenile.

Authorities aren't sure where the other male went, but they say an ankle monitor was found nearby. They believe he is also a juvenile.

If you have any information, call Pueblo police.
