Two juveniles arrested for attempted murder in Colorado Springs

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Colorado Springs Police have arrested two juveniles for attempted first degree murder in connection to shots fired in Colorado Springs.

It happened just before 3 a.m. in the area of Jet Wing Drive and S. Chelton Road.

Police say the victim was driving in the area when a white SUV passed him. Shortly after, his car window was broken, which he says was the result of someone inside the white SUV throwing something at his car.

The victim then tried to get closer to get the suspect's license plate number. That's when one of the suspects fired multiple shots at him, narrowly missing him and shattering several of his car windows.

Police were able to link a reported stolen vehicle to one of the suspects. Police then identified the other suspect and arrested him at his home where they recovered the gun used in the shooting which turned out to be stolen.

Both suspects are facing charges of attempted first degree murder and possession of a handgun by a juvenile.
