COLORADO SPRINGS – 23-year old Felix Fredrico is in the El Paso County jail facing several charges after a family issue escalated into an alleged threat to shoot police officers early Sunday morning.
A woman contacted the Colorado Springs police and said the man was drunk and refused to return their child to her. She also told the dispatcher that he had a gun and was threatening to shoot at police officers. After the officers arrived at the home off South Academy Blvd and Hancock Expressway, Fredrico set the child down and ran towards them telling them to shoot him.
After a brief struggle, he was arrested and taken to jail.
