Red flag petition filed against officer in fatal shooting

A woman whose son was killed by Colorado State University police in 2017 is trying to have the guns of one of the officers involved confiscated under the state’s new red flag law, a move the sheriff calls a classic example of how the controversial law can be abused. In her Jan. 9 petition for an extreme risk protection order, Susan Holmes said there was a credible risk of unlawful or reckless use of a firearm by Phillip Morris because he threatened and killed her son, 19-year-old Jeremy Holmes, and because she said he has shown ongoing violence and aggression. Morris’ actions were investigated in the shooting and deemed justified by the district attorney, who noted that Morris tried to de-escalate the situation.
