CSPD: Fleeing suspect wrecks 2 police cars

COLORADO SPRINGS - The Colorado Springs Police Department is looking for an armed suspect who wrecked two police vehicles as he was fleeing the scene on Sunday. 

Officers responded to 520 Yucca Drive at around 10:40 a.m. after getting a call about a man firing shots in the air.  

They tried to speak with the suspect, but he was not cooperating. The suspect then got into his Chevy pickup truck and rammed two police vehicles with enough force that the officers couldn't drive them. He then drove away in his truck, which now has damage to the front bumper and hood. 

An officer was inside one of the patrol vehicles that the suspect hit and was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. 

The suspect is described as being a white man in his mid-20s. The Police Department does believe he is armed. 

If you have any information on where he is or on this incident, you are asked to call the CSPD.
