COLORADO SPRINGS — Colorado Springs Police closed off a portion of Nevada Ave between Austin Bluffs Parkway and Winters Drive due to a standoff involving a person who refused an eviction attempt.

According to police, El Paso County Sheriff's Office deputies went to the motel on the 3800 block of N Nevada to serve eviction papers when the subject pointed a gun at them.

The tenant then barricaded themselves in the unit and refused all further attempts at communication.

Once SWAT officers made entry into the room they found the person dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot.
