2 juveniles arrested after homicide near Memorial Park

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Colorado Springs police arrested two teenagers this week for the killing of a 30-year-old man last month near Memorial Park.

Terrell Cortez Madrid Duran was shot Aug. 27 in the 1300 block of E. Las Animas Street. He was then taken to the hospital, where he died from his injuries.

Police say a 15-year-old and 17-year-old were arrested for first-degree murder shortly after warrants were issued Wednesday, but no other identifying information was released because they're juveniles.

It's also not clear what led to the shooting or what the motive was behind it. We do know that Duran had a criminal history of sexual assault on a child, and he was wanted by Colorado law enforcement at the time of his death for failure to register as a sex offender.

Police say Duran's death is the 20th homicide in the city so far this year.
