Suspected carjacker shot and wounded at Colorado campground
CASTLE ROCK — Colorado police say a 29-year-old man who carjacked a vehicle and shot at other vehicles was himself shot when he threatened a camper at a campground in Pike National Forest.
The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office says the man was shot multiple times and taken to a hospital where he was in stable condition.
The man’s name wasn’t immediately released.
The Sheriff’s Office says the incident occurred Monday afternoon, starting with a carjacking in neighboring El Paso County and ending at the Devil’s Head Campground in Douglas County.
The man drove a stolen vehicle into Pike National Forest shooting at passing vehicles along the way. Stopping at the campground, the man pointed a rifle at a camper who then shot him.
No one else was injured. Charges are pending.
Tenants at the city’s oldest deed-restricted housing complex, Centennial Apartments, faced rent hikes as high as 30% in January that sent city, county, and APCHA officials into closed-door meetings with the relatively new landlord, Birge & Held.
