    Default death at camp



    Either my post didn't take last night or was deleted. If it is deleted for whatever reason, let me know so I don't re post again.

    There was what's currently considered an accident at rainbow falls on friday, where a guy was shot and killed while camping with his family. It's believed to be a stray bullet from a high powered rifle. Both douglas and teller county sheriff's are investigating the incident. If you were in the area and saw or heard anything contact the sheriff's departments with any info, or discuss here/PM.
    Thanks.

    I didn't delete it (and never saw it).

    Feel free to post as you see fit.

    Either General or Chat or even Members Only would seem most likely forums.

    Heard that on the news Matt, it's a sad day when someone gets shot by a stray bullet. I'll never understand why people shoot w/o a clue where they are shooting.

    Was camping just south of there and heard/saw the emergency responders headed north. Didn't know what for at the time though. Sad news.

    Is that by Black Forest? Right now on the news there is a hostage situation in Black Forest that has the area closed. Wondering if these are related; but I don't know my geography in that direction.

    Black Forest is just north of Colorado Springs. The campground is a few miles north of Woodland park. Woodland Park is about 30-35 miles west of Colorado Springs.
