WESTCLIFFE, Colorado – The manhunt is underway for Hanme K. Clark, 45, who is suspected of shooting four people, killing three and critically injuring another, during a property line dispute in a wooded area near Westcliffe, Colorado. According to the Custer County Sheriff’s Office, Clark is on the run and may be traveling in a covered white Dodge Ram 1500 pickup truck with a dark-haired woman.
The shooting occurred on Monday at 173 Rocky Ridge Road, about eight miles northeast of Westcliffe. Police arrived at the remote location about 25 minutes after the first report of the incident. Upon arrival, they found two men and a woman dead and a fourth victim critically injured, who was airlifted to a hospital in Colorado Springs.
The suspect, Hanme K. Clark, had been involved in an ongoing property line dispute with one of the victims, according to the sheriff’s department. Clark is considered armed and dangerous, and authorities have urged residents to alert them rather than approach him.
