Heavy Police Activity in Colorado Springs Springs Right Now

Live Feed: http://www.kktv.com/livestream

On my way home from work, I was passed by a CSPD Bomb Squad unit at approximately 6 am, and I have seen multiple cars responding somewhere south of my location. Hard to say what's going on right now, but it sounds like (ATF?) is on scene with snipers.

Update

"11 News is working to learn more about early morning police activity near Nevada Avenue and Winters. Roads were blocked off in the area where the chase ended, at El Paso Drive and Prospect. Those roads were open again around 10:30 a.m.

At around 6 a.m. this morning police surrounded a man's home in order to serve an arrest warrant. The suspect then fled from his home and jumped into a white SUV. That's when police began their pursuit.

They found the man, dead in his vehicle near El Paso Drive and Prospect. There was no gunfire exchanged between the suspect and police. He died from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

At this time we do know the suspect was wanted for sexual assault, felony menacing and kidnapping charges.

CSPD confirms they have a coroner on the way. We will bring you updates as they become available."

I'm guessing has nothing to do with the 'suspicious cylinder' found in the park yesterday...
