One man was sent to the hospital after an overnight shooting at the Layalina Smoke Shop on S. Nevada ave.
Shortly before 2:00 a.m. Springs Police started receiving 911 calls about the shooting. When they arrived, they found multiple vehicles that had been struck by bullets. Officers on scene were notified that a shooting victim had been taken to Memorial Hospital.
Police say that Jose Soto got involved in an argument with an unknown Hispanic man sitting in a car in the parking lot of the hookah bar. When Mr. Soto tried to open the door of the vehicle, the suspect allegedly pulled out a handgun and started shooting. Mr. Soto was struck in the left leg by one of the bullets. His injuries were determined to be non life threatening.
No further suspect information has been provided at this time and police are continuing to investigate the incident.
