Update: We now know the name of the second person killed in a quadruple shooting at the Timberland Apartments in Colorado Springs on Tuesday: Andrew Encalade, age 23.

If that name sounds familiar, it should. His older brother Adam, age 26, was injured in the gunplay but survived.

Andrew's Facebook page is private, so no photos are available. However, his nickname is listed as "Bones." His interests include hip-hop, the Bible and family.

Police continue to search for Alonzo "Babywiz" Paige in connection with the shootings. Below, find his mug shot as part of our previous coverage.

Update, 5:48 a.m. January 25: We've now got some names and additional information pertaining to the gunplay that took place at the Timberlane Apartments in Colorado Springs early on January 24. Marquise Bean has been identified as one of the two men killed, while Jareem Vanterpool, 21, and Adam Encalade, 26, were hospitalized. And cops have issued a warrant for Alonzo Paige, nicknamed Babywiz.

As for the fourth shooting victim (and second who died), his identity is pending the completion of an autopsy.

Vanterpool's Facebook page is private, with wall posts and photos off-limits to those not on his friends list. The only clue it offers about him is the following profile image:

In contrast, Encalade's Facebook page nixes wall posts but offers a slew of photographs like this self-portrait: Other shots feature a growing baby boy at various ages.

In the meantime, the CSPD is on the lookout for "Babywiz" Paige, whose record reportedly includes a number of arrests and a guilty plea related to driving with alcohol. Here's his mug shot:

The cops are also seeking any information about a vehicle described as a dark-colored, older-model sedan with two wide stripes down the middle of the hood and the trunk.

See our previous coverage below.

Original post, 12:26 p.m. January 24: Early this morning, gunfire rang out in a Colorado Springs apartment complex -- and the bullets did plenty of damage.

At this writing, two people are confirmed to have died in the incident, and two others have been hospitalized, one in what a Colorado Springs Police spokesperson has described as "very serious."

With a manhunt ongoing, the CSPD is releasing only the barest details. Reports of a shooting began circulating at around 4:30 a.m. at Timberlane, located at 3985 East Bijou Street. Police subsequently received reports about numerous vehicles being spotted near the scene. At this point, investigators are still trying to determine which, if any, are linked to the shootings.

In the meantime, a manhunt is on, but no suspect information has been released. Neither have the victims been identified, pending next of kin's notification.
