COLORADO SPRINGS — On Saturday, January 11, 2020, at approximately 11:57 PM, an officer with the Colorado Springs Police Department (CSPD) initiated a traffic stop near the intersection of Galley Road and Arrawanna Street. The traffic stop was initiated due an expired license plate registration.
The male suspect shot at the officers who returned fire. During the incident at least one round was fired at the suspect by the officer. The suspect drove away from the scene and later was involved in a traffic accident at Pikes Peak Avenue and Dunsmere Street. He then fled the scene on foot.
One officer was shot in the altercation and is expected to recover.
The suspect has now been identified as Randy Bishop, 35. Bishop is also wanted on a CSPD case where he escaped custody of a CSPD detective while at Memorial Hospital. In December 2019, the CSPD Detective pursued Bishop down a hall where a physical altercation ensued, during which time Bishop assaulted the detective and took control of his firearm.
