Armed suspect found hiding underneath...

COLORADO SPRINGS - Colorado Springs police tracked down an armed suspect on the southeast side of Colorado Springs on Wednesday. 

Officers responded to the Goodwill on S. Academy Boulevard at around 11:20 a.m. to investigate a disturbance that forced the store to go on lockdown. 

Witnesses told police that a man, who was later identified as Thomas Ivery, armed with a handgun had just run from the scene towards the nearby Whitney Housing Complex. 

A containment was set up, and officers eventually found the gun and Ivery's clothes, which led them to find Ivery hiding underneath a trampoline behind a six-foot fence

Ivery was arrested for possession of a weapon by a previous offender.
