Authorities: 2 dead in Colorado Springs gang clash over stolen iPod
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado ” Investigators say a shooting east of Colorado Springs that left two people dead stemmed from a gang-related clash over a stolen iPod.
El Paso County sheriff’s Lt. Lari Sevene says 19-year-old Juan Vasquez was arrested early Friday on suspicion of killing two teenage boys. It wasn’t immediately clear if Vasquez had an attorney.
Deputies responded to a report of a fight involving nearly two dozen people at about 4 p.m. Thursday near Cimarron Eastridge Park, and found at least one person performing CPR on a shooting victim.
One person died at the scene. The second died at a hospital less than an hour later.
The names of the victims have not been released, but Sevene says they attended Sierra High School and New Horizon School.
Autopsies are planned.
