Sheriff's Office Arrests Attempted Murder Suspect

Feb 22, 2023 - 2:10pm

On February 21, 2023, just after 8:00pm, an adult female called 911 to report she was seriously injured after having been assaulted by her 16-year-old son at a home in the 7100 block of Trails End Court located in the Security/Widefield area of unincorporated El Paso County.  When deputies arrived, they located the victim and found her to have sustained significant injuries.  She is expected to survive.  
Based on their investigation, an arrest warrant was signed by a judge charging the suspect with Attempted First Degree Murder and other Felony crimes.  It was believed at that time the suspect was inside the home.  Responding units established containment and called out for him to surrender.  There was no response, and it was believed he was barricaded.  
As such, the Sheriff’s Office Tactical Support Group (TSG) responded to the scene.  The TSG consists of SWAT, K9, Crisis Negotiators, members of the Regional Explosives Unit, Tactical Medics from the Colorado Springs Fire Department, and Tactical Dispatchers.  Following extensive unsuccessful efforts to communicate with him and the use of tactical intervention methods, it was determined he’d fled the scene prior to containment having been established on the home.
This morning, just before 8:15am, deputies saw the suspect on foot near the intersection of Sullivan Avenue and Trails End Court.  He fled from them but was taken into custody without incident a short time later and was subsequently booked in to the Zebulon Pike Youth Services Center.  Due to the suspect’s age, his identity will not be released.
