"There were multiple people firing off various guns" CO Springs Last Night

At least four people were hurt during a shooting in Colorado Springs early Sunday morning.

Colorado Springs Police say the shooting happened at around 1 a.m. on Sunday, officers say four people were hit by gunfire. It happened on the 1500-block of South Nevada Avenue. Investigators on scene said it appears somebody started shooting and then multiple other people also started firing guns. As of Sunday morning how the shooting started remains a mystery.

"There were multiple people firing off various guns, we have at least four calibers involved so we're curious as to what happened and why it happened," said Sgt. Jim Jeffcoat of the Colorado Springs Police Department.

None of the people hit suffered life-threatening injuries, at least two other people suffered wounds from an assault.http://www.koaa.com/news/at-least-four-hit-by-gunfire-during-shooting-in-colorado-springs/

1. Poverty and inequity, leading to gangs, leading to violence.

There are two pawn shops and one pay day loan shop on that block, and a liquor store.

I can't say that one has to do with the other but usually there are connections.

3. Yes, easily available guns are often used. Take away the guns...

...and the violence and despair will still be there.

To be sure, however, guns need to made much harder to obtain.
