Sheriff's Office Seeks Public's Help in Identifying Shooting Suspect(s)

Jul 7, 2023 - 1:52pm

In the early morning hours of July 7th, 2023, just after 3am, El Paso County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to an address in the 4000 block of Witches Hollow Lane in the Security/Widefield area of unincorporated El Paso County due to a report of shots fired in the area.  

Deputies arrived a short time later and discovered multiple gunshots had been fired at and into an occupied home in that area.  Thankfully, no one was injured.  Evidence was collected on scene and an investigation into this incident is underway.

If anyone has information regarding this shooting, or if there are residents in that area with surveillance footage they are willing to share with us that might help us identify a suspect(s), they are encouraged to call our tip line at 719-520-7777.  

The Sheriff’s Office greatly values our strong relationships with our neighbors here in the Pikes Peak region to both prevent and to solve crime  A component of our efforts to foster strong community working relationships is our Community Video Program (…).  

In a nutshell, this program enables representatives of both residential and commercial properties that are equipped with video or still image surveillance equipment to provide us their name, address, and contact information.  In the event we are involved in an investigation in a particular area for which surveillance footage could potentially be useful, our personnel would reference the Community Video Program roster for that given area, contact participants, and request to view and/or download available and applicable footage.  In no way does participating in this program give the Sheriff’s Office remote access to surveillance systems or equipment.

Above is a URL to more detailed online information for this program.  A Community Video Program brochure is also attached to this media release.  Anyone with further questions regarding this program can call our Crime Prevention Coordinator at 719-520-7151 or email to [email protected].
