COLORADO SPRINGS — UPDATE: On Tuesday Feb. 25, the Colorado Springs Police Dept. received a tip on the whereabouts of Kyree Davon Howard-Walker.
The tip said Howard-Walker and another person with an outstanding warrant were at a residence in the 1000 block of Florence Ave. This is on the southwest side of Colorado Springs.
CSPD said that after it was confirmed both wanted individuals were at the residence, the Tactical Enforcement Unit (TEU) was called in.
A search warrant was obtained for the residence and executed by the TEU. Contact was made with two people in the residence and several warning were given for all occupants to exit the building. After several warnings, the other wanted individual, identified as 36-year-old Serena Sublett, exited the residence and was taken into custody.
Police said the TEU then located a deceased adult male in the residence with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. No shots were fired by police, CSPD said.
The scene was processed and the deceased male was identified as Howard-Walker.
CSPD said the El Paso County Coroner's Office will determine the official cause and manner of death.
The Colorado Springs Police Department confirmed that one suspect is responsible for three shootings that took place in the city Saturday.
CSPD has issued an arrest warrant for the suspect identified as 27-year-old Kyree Davon Howard-Walker of Colorado Springs. He is wanted for charges including two counts of murder, attempted murder, aggravated robbery, and more. Howard-Walker remains at-large and should be considered armed and dangerous.
Just after 10 a.m. Saturday, officers responded to the 3700 block of Westmeadow Drive for a reported shooting. When officers arrived, CSPD said they found a male victim with a gunshot wound and immediately rendered medical aid.
The man was transported to an area hospital with life-threatening injuries. The man later died from his injuries Sunday, according to the department.
Police said that at approximately the same time, there was a carjacking reported just east of the shooting in the 3700 block of Penny Point. In this incident, police said Howard-Walker stole a black Dodge Journey with Colorado license plate 237-WKQ. Early Tuesday morning the Motor Vehicle Task Force located and recovered the black Dodge Journey.
While this carjacking and shooting was being investigated, police were called to a second carjacking and shooting just before 3:45 p.m. in the 200 block of South Wahsatch Avenue. When officers arrived they found a male victim with a gunshot wound. He was taken to the hospital with serious injuries but is expected to recover.
During the course of that investigation officers received reports of the suspect shooting at cars in the area of South Wahsatch Avenue and East Costilla Street and reportedly stole a green Buick LeSabre with Colorado license plate 350-UOM.
News5 spoke with a man who said he saw two suspects rummaging through his car outside of his business, Apex Sports. He confronted the people and they threatened him.
"Give me your keys, I said 'no I don't have them.' I approached him again, he stuck the gun back in my face and says 'get away from me, I'll pop you'... They both ended up running away and running over to Wahsatch Street where then I started hearing pop pop pop, and that's where they had hit a vehicle in the windshield and shot a guy in the face," said Mike Stokes, who said he feels lucky to be alive.
Those with the police department said the public should be ready to protect themselves because Howard-Walker is believed to be armed and dangerous.
"Lock your doors. If you're at an intersection and someone walks up, drive away," said Sgt. Jason Newton with CSPD.
The third shooting took place Saturday evening. Colorado Springs Police were called to Fountain Springs Apartments around 6:10 p.m. and found a man dead from an apparent gunshot wound.
The El Paso County Coroner's Office will release the names of both victims once their next of kin have been notified and after autopsies are completed.
