Just after midnight in a mobile home park in Colorado Springs, a man opened fire at a birthday party killing six adults then turning the gun on himself.
The suspected shooter was the boyfriend of one of the female victims at the party. He just entered and started shooting, police said. This marks Colorado’s worst mass shooting since a gunman killed 10 people at a Boulder supermarket March 22. Other such tragedies include the 2015 shooting of three; killing of three including police officer injuring eight at Planned Parenthood clinic.
Gov. Jared Polis said, “The tragic shooting in Colorado Springs is devastating especially as many of us are spending the day celebrating the women in our lives who have made us the people we are today.”
