Second Arrest Made in the Security Area Shooting

May 7, 2014

Since the shooting which occurred in the 1100 block of Main Street on May 3, 2014, and the associated arrest of Michael Malory on May 4, the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office has continued its investigation into the shooting death of Daniel Baird.

Over the past few days several search warrants have been executed. Through those efforts and subsequent investigation, an arrest warrant was obtained for 32 year old Brian Springsted.   On the evening of May 6, members of the Sheriff’s Office SWAT Team attempted to locate Springsted at his home in the 100 block of Ely Street in Widefield but he was not there; however, Springsted was located by detectives and taken into custody near the Fountain Valley Shops at Hwy 85 and Main Street.

Springsted has been booked into the Criminal Justice Center for First Degree Murder and is held without bond.
