COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - A 23-year-old man who was shot and killed over the weekend in Colorado Springs told an officer the name of the person who shot him as he rode to the hospital in an ambulance.

KRDO reports Derrick Lawrence Jr. was found lying in the street in the southwestern part of the city on Saturday morning. A police report says Lawrence identified the 19-year-old suspect before he died.

The suspect was arrested the next day on suspicion of first-degree murder, but charges have not been filed.

The shooting apparently was related to a rollover crash that happened earlier Saturday.
