PUEBLO, Colo. (AP) — A 19-year-old Pueblo man has been identified as the person shot and killed in a Colorado State Fair parking lot.

The Pueblo Chieftain reports the body of Daniel Gonzales was found late Friday.

Police say Gonzales was shot at least once.

Officials say witnesses heard gunshots and saw at least two vehicles leave the area.

Investigators are looking for a black Honda and a truck suspected to have been near the shooting.

People with tips related to the shooting can contact Pueblo authorities.

Colorado State Fair general manager Sarah Cummings said security will be evaluated for any needed changes.

She said the fair will end Sept. 5 as planned.
