LITTLETON, Colo. — Police were still looking for a shooting suspect in Littleton on Thursday morning after a fatal shooting the night before.

Police say a man shot and killed another man just after 8 p.m. Wednesday, and the gunman ran off. The victim was transported to Littleton Adventist Hospital, where he later died.

Nearby residents in the 500 block of West Peakview Avenue were urged to stay inside and keep their doors locked. Police say they believe the suspect knew the victim and do not believe the public is in danger.

The suspect’s name has not been released and he was last seen running from the area toward South Broadway. He is described as a white male, 5-foot-10, weighing 200 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes. He was seen wearing blue jeans and a long-sleeve black T-shirt.
