Here’s what’s going on around Colorado today:
SOLDIERS ARRESTED IN COLORADO HOME INVASION
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Authorities say four soldiers have turned themselves in after breaking into a Colorado Springs apartment and threatening someone with a gun.
The Colorado Springs Gazette reports that police say the Fort Carson soldiers were arrested on suspicion of burglary, menacing and child abuse. Jails records say they are all being held in El Paso County jail.
Police say a family of four says they were home Sunday evening when the four men walked in, one carrying a handgun. The family told police that the man threatened to shoot them and demanded property.
Officials say the family knew the soldiers. The four men turned themselves in later that night.
81-YEAR-OLD DRIVER ACCUSED IN DENVER TEEN’S DEATH DIES
DENVER — An 81-year-old woman accused of crashing into and killing a 13-year-old Denver boy has died.
A family spokesman told KUSA-TV that Patricia Livingston died Saturday night at Denver Hospice as a result of complications from the July 13 crash. The Denver District Attorney’s Office confirmed her death Monday and said her careless driving charge would be dropped.
Police say Livingston was swerving in and out of traffic and failed to negotiate a curve when she hit Cole Sukle and a friend as they stood on the sidewalk and a bike lane. She kept driving for several blocks and crashed into a creek.
Livingston’s family says they limited her driving after she crashed into a stopped car in October but she wasn’t ticketed. The other driver didn’t want to press charges.
NFL CLEARS PEYTON MANNING OF HGH ALLEGATIONS
NEW YORK — The NFL says it found no credible evidence that Peyton Manning was provided with HGH or other prohibited substances as alleged in a documentary by Al-Jazeera America last fall.
The league said the quarterback and his wife fully cooperated in the seven-month investigation, providing interviews and access to all records sought by investigators. Manning vehemently denied the allegations when they were made late in the season.
Manning retired from the NFL a month after Denver’s 24-10 win over Carolina in Super Bowl 50.
The NFL is continuing its investigation into allegations made against other NFL players in the documentary, which the league said involves “different lines of inquiry and witnesses.”
