The suspect arrested in connection to the shooting inside a dorm at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs that left two people dead was a student, the school confirmed to Fox News.”On Monday morning, February 19, 2024, members of the Colorado Springs Police Department took a suspect into custody in connection to our investigation into the homicides on Friday, February 16, 2024, on the campus of the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs (UCCS),” the Colorado Springs Police Department posted on X, formerly Twitter.

On Monday, just before 8 a.m., members of the Colorado Springs Police Department’s Motor Vehicle Theft Unit located Nicholas Jordan, who is from Detroit, Michigan, in a vehicle. Police said he was taken into custody without incident.”Investigative efforts continue to indicate this was an isolated incident between individuals who were known to one another and not a random attack against the school or other students at the university,” the post continued. COLORADO POLICE IDENTIFY 2 KILLED IN COLLEGE DORM SHOOTING A police officer stands outside a dorm in the Village at Alpine Valley housing, Friday, Feb. 16, 2024, as police investigate a shooting on the University of Colorado Colorado Springs campus in Colorado Springs, Colo.
