Colorado Springs Church Shooting

18-year old Stephanie Works and 16-year old Rachel Works were killed. 51-year David Works suffered gunshot wounds to the abdomen and is listed in fair condition at Penrose Hospital. 40-year old Judy Purcell was shot in the shoulder. 59-year old Larry Bourbonnais was wounded in the left arm. Both Burcell and Bourbonnais were treated and released.

The suspect's name has not been released yet.

Meanwhile, Authorities are searching a home in Englewood, looking for any link between two shooting sprees at Christian religious centers that left people baffled and stunned.

Law enforcement officers say the home may be related to the Colorado Springs shooting case. Officers could be seen coming and going from the home Monday morning, and at one point, they were searching bushes in front.

Arvada Deputy Police Chief Gary Creager says there's a good possibility that Sunday's shootings in Arvada and Colorado Springs are linked, but --quote-- "we have to prove that they are."

During a late-night conference on Sunday, Colorado Springs Police Chief Richard Myers told reporters a female security guard shot and killed the suspect, after he had already shot 5 New Life members, killing two.

Police say they will release more information at a 3:00 p.m. news conference. That news conference will be carried live on KKTV, and on KKTV.COM.
