3 in critical condition following...

Three people are in the hospital with life-threatening injuries after a late-night shooting in Pueblo.

Police say it started as a domestic incident. It happened in the 1600 block of East 4th Avenue.

"We just recently got a warrant; they're in the house. They're continuing to search right now," said Sgt. Eric Gonzalez, with the Pueblo Police Department.

The call came in just after 11 p.m. Wednesday for reports of a shooting.

Officers found a woman and two men with gunshot wounds.

"It was an estranged husband that showed up to the residence, ended up shooting his estranged wife and a male that was also in the house," Gonzalez said.

The husband then shot himself.

One neighbor in the area told us this concerns her but it's becoming all too common.

"It's bad, we don't get out and walk around the neighborhood anymore. It's just too dangerous," said Linda Lynch.

Lynch lives just a few houses away from the scene.

"About 11:30 a lot of police vehicles were out here, street blocked. It looked like two fire trucks and we heard what sounded like an ambulance leave," Lynch said.

While police continue to investigate the scene, they'll have to wait on arrests.

"We're waiting to make sure these individuals are taken care of and hopefully they don't succumb to those injuries, so we're on standby right now," Gonzalez said.

The former couple was air lifted to Denver. The third person is being treated at Parkview Medical Center. All three have life-threatening injuries.

The investigation is ongoing.
