Case Description

File Number:  07-13047

The Victim: Mr. Terry L. Wilson, a 53 year old male from Colorado Springs died as a result of a single gunshot wound.  His death has been ruled a homicide. 

The Crime: On Wednesday, April 18, 2007, at approximately 10:30 p.m. officers from the Gold Hill Division responded to the 300 block of E. Pikes Peak Avenue regarding several reports of shots fired. 

Upon arriving in the area officers observed a yellow taxi cab that appeared to have been involved in a traffic accident in the 00 block of S. Wahsatch Avenue.  Inside of the cab officers discovered Mr. Terry L. Wilson, the apparent victim of a gunshot wound.  It appears that Mr. Terry L. Wilson was traveling southbound on Wahsatch Avenue when he was struck by a bullet from the shots fired on Pikes Peak Avenue.

At this time it appears that there was a gun battle between two groups of individuals in the 300 block of Pikes Peak Avenue.  Callers reported hearing anywhere from 10 to 15 gunshots. Mr. Terry L. Wilson was not a party to the disturbance, or the subsequent gun battle.  

The Investigation: Dozens of people were contacted and interviewed due to the shooting having occurred in the street in front of an extremely busy night club. 

The majority of people contacted were uncooperative, and as a result no suspect information has been developed. 

From physical evidence collected from the scene, Detectives have determined several people were present in the area during the time of the shooting.  New information, while scarce, is continually reviewed and investigated. 

This case remains open and active, in an attempt to identify who is responsible for killing Mr. Terry L. Wilson.  


The Colorado Springs Police Department Homicide Cold Case Unit is currently responsible for approximately 90 unsolved homicide cases dating back to 1949. CSPD considers a case to be cold if it remains unsolved for more than one year.
