LAKEWOOD, Colo. (CBS4)- The two men involved in a murder-suicide in Littleton and Lakewood have been identified.

Police in Lakewood embarked on a manhunt Thursday afternoon at Bear Creek Park to find a murder suspect. They found the man’s body a short time later, possibly dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

That man has been identified as Colin Collea.

Officers said Collea, 58, was connected to a murder in Littleton.

Shots were fired Thursday afternoon and a sniper team was on scene in the park. Collea was described as possibly suicidal and may have been threatening officers before police believe he took his own life.

Police in Littleton confirmed a man was shot inside a home located at 5931 S. Camargo Way. The cul de sac where the home is located has been blocked off to traffic.

That man has been identified as Ken Germain. Germain, 67, succumbed to multiple gunshot wounds.

The investigation into the shootings began when Lakewood Police Department received a 911 call from an unknown male reporting at shooting at about 1:21 p.m. Thursday.

Although the investigation continues, no suspects are being sought at this time.
