Colorado Springs PD/NYPD

In January 2007, Colorado Springs Police Department responded to a shooting at a residence where the victim sustained multiple gunshot wounds. Later that same month, New York City Police Department (NYPD) conducted a traffic stop and arrested three men for unlawful possession of one .40 caliber pistol and one .45 caliber pistol. One of the suspects was a Colorado resident. Using NIBIN, NYPD Crime Laboratory matched the .40 caliber pistol to the shooting incident in Colorado. In February 2009, following extradition from Colorado and a guilty plea to attempted murder, the Colorado suspect was sentenced to 16 years imprisonment.
