Update on Officer Involved Shooting

On Monday, August 14, 2017, at approximately 11:36 PM, the Colorado Springs Police Department (CSPD) responded to the Walmart at 3201 East Platte Avenue regarding a shoplifting complaint. The suspect ran from police to the 3200 block of East Bijou Street where he brandished a firearm at officers and an officer discharged his weapon. It was later determined the firearm was a Crosman Vigilante pellet pistol, which is almost an exact replica of a firearm.

The El Paso County Coroner has positively identified the suspect killed by police gunfire on August 14, 2017, as Steven James Young, DOB: 02/29/72.

Young was wanted on four felony warrants including a Fugitive from Justice warrant from the Colorado Department of Corrections, Aggravated Motor Vehicle Theft, and multiple counts of Vehicular Eluding.

A Jeep Cherokee stolen from CSPD’s jurisdiction on June 26, 2017, and positively identified as being driven by Young in three previous police pursuits was found in the East Platte Walmart parking lot immediately after the shooting.

The officer was wearing a body worn camera and we are in the process of reviewing the footage to see if the incident was recorded.
