CO: Trail of Destruction after Domestic Disturbance

A suspect in a domestic disturbance allegedly broke into a house and was shot by a homeowner before crashing his car into multiple downtown businesses early Sunday morning, according to Colorado Springs police. 

According to police officials, the trail of destruction started around 1:30 a.m., in the Hillside neighborhood, outside of a house on the 1900 block of South Prospect Street, where the suspect, identified as Fidencio Meza-Pelayo, was involved in a domestic disturbance with his girlfriend.

During the disturbance, his girlfriend ran across the street to get help from a neighbor, and the suspect "temporarily lost sight of her," police said.

The suspect then ran to his house, came back out, got into a vehicle and backed out of the driveway, hitting a neighbor's parked car.

At that point, police said, Meza-Pelayo got out of the car and attempted to break into the neighbor's home, thinking his girlfriend, who was a block away on foot, was hiding inside. Police said the homeowner fired a single shot, hitting the man.
