COLORADO SPRINGS - Family and friends are mourning the loss of a 16-year-old boy killed in a shooting during a violent weekend in Colorado Springs.
About 100 people gathered Sunday night in the parking lot of the 24-hour Mexican restaurant, Albertacos, where friends say Nate "Winters" Czajkowski was fatally shot at around 2 a.m. that morning. Two other juveniles were also wounded and taken to the hospital.
The shooting happened a couple of hours after two men and a woman were shot during a large house party about 3 miles away off Soft Breeze Way in Colorado Springs. Two of them were hospitalized in critical and stable condition, while the third was listed in serious and stable condition at the time.
Colorado Springs police say more than 100 people attended the house party, most were either juveniles or young adults.
Nate was a District 11 student. We know that Doherty High School has increased their security and placed grief counselors on campus.
This is the 24th homicide in Colorado Springs for 2017.
The Colorado Springs Police Department is asking that anyone with information on Nate's death or the house party please call (719) 444-7000.
