Authorities on Sunday were investigating a shooting in Falcon that left one person dead and four others wounded, according to the El Paso County Sheriff's Office.

Investigators believe that the shooting, which occurred around 12:50 a.m. in the 12200 block of Point Reyes Drive in the Meridian Ranch subdivision, may have been connected to a carjacking on Saturday near Potter Drive, sheriff's Lt. Deborah Mynatt said in a statement.

One of the victims died after being rushed to a hospital, and the other victims were being treated for "varying levels of injuries," Mynatt said.

The victim who was fatally shot was not immediately identified Sunday, and authorities were still searching for the suspects. 

The FBI and the Colorado Springs Police Department were also investigating the shooting.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the Sheriff's Office at 719-520-7777. Tipsters who wish to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers at 719-634-7867.
