A man commits suicide after shooting neighbors in a small town west of Colorado Springs.

FLORISSANT, Colo. (AP) — Authorities say they are investigating why a man opened fire on his neighbor’s homes in a Colorado mountain community early Sunday, forcing residents to evacuate.

The Teller County Sheriff’s Office says the man was later found dead at his home from a self-inflicted gunshot wound in Florissant. No one else was injured.

The sheriff’s office says about 11 residents were evacuated in an emergency tactical vehicle by the SWAT team and the suspect continued to fire after the evacuation. He says multiple firing points were set up inside the attacker’s home.
