Gunman Shot Dead After Shooting Spree In Colorado Springs

(SL) – Witnesses say the gunman was eerily calm as he walked down the street and opened fired on three people.  The deceased are two women and a cyclist. Reportedly, he strolled the pavement armed with two guns and approached his victims calmly before shooting them.

A gunman shot dead a cyclist and two women in Colorado Springs on Saturday before he was gunned down.

“He’s walking in the street. Two guns, walking calmly, like walking [a] dog. Not worried, not scared – nothing,” Matt Abshire told ABC News.

Abshire explained to local media how he tailed the suspect after seeing him attack his first victim, the ‘college age’ cyclist. Dialing 911, Abshire continued to follow the man as he brazenly walked 100 yards before turning to two women and firing four shots.

The rear window of a Colorado Springs Police car is shattered after a shooting.

“I looked out my kitchen window and I saw a man in a green jacket firing an AR-15…waited a few seconds, went out my house, looked to my left and saw a man down the street, probably 50 feet. I started calling him and I called the cops,” Abshire told The Colorado Springs Gazette.

One witness said the gunman didn’t appear angry, more like ‘a man on a mission’ as he walked the streets.

The suspect has not been identified. But he was shot by authorities after police showed up on the scene and he attempted to turn his gun on them.

Another witness, Naomi Bettis said, “He just looked like he was somebody that was going to be on a mission.”
