COLORADO SPRINGS | A person was shot and killed outside a courthouse in Colorado Springs on Thursday, authorities said, shutting down court proceedings for the day as police investigated.
One person was found dead outside the El Paso County Courthouse, and one person was taken into custody, Colorado Springs police said on X, the social media service formerly known as Twitter.
