MALE SHOT IN REPORTED HOME INVASION

On July 23, 2020 at approximately 12:15 a.m., Pueblo police officers responded to a residence in the 700 block of Box Elder Street on a reported home invasion.

Upon arrival, officers contacted two residents of the home. Officers were told that a white car pulled up and parked in front of the home. Three males exited the vehicle and entered the home through the front door. A physical altercation ensued and one of the residents fired a handgun at the intruders. The three males then left the home. The residents believed that two of the three males may have been hit by the gunfire.

A short time later, a 39-year-old male arrived at a local hospital with two non-life-threatening gunshot wounds. It is believed that this male was one of the parties who entered the home on Box Elder Street.

One of the other two unknown males who entered the home was described as an Hispanic male with a bald head and a cleft lip. He was wearing a white basketball jersey with red trim, and he had tattoos on his chest. The second of the other two unknown males was described as an older Hispanic male, 6’5” tall and 230 lbs., with gray head hair and no facial hair. One of these two males may have been shot during the incident.
