Police in a Colorado Springs suburb shot and killed a man who’s two children later died of wounds and police said he may have dropped them.
Lt. Larry Sevigny said the children’s mother called the El Paso County sheriff’s office saying she was “concerned about some of (the father’s) statements he made about the children.”
Police found the children, between the ages of 2 and 5, inside the Crystal Park house, unconscious, “with visible injuries.”
The Denver Post reported Monday that officials said they had no choice but to shoot the father when he confronted them.
Sevin was unable to give details about the shooting.
“A lot of these things are under investigation. This is still a very active investigation,” Seven said.
