DOUGLAS COUNTY, Colo. — The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office continues to investigate the source of a bullet that killed a camper July 3 at Rainbow Falls Park.

Glenn Martin, 60, died when he was hit by an errant bullet while camping with family members.

Deputies have been asking for help identifying anyone who was shooting a high-powered rifle in the area of Rainbow Falls Park that evening.

Now, they say they’re working to rule out weapons that were not involved in the death.

“We recognize that there were numerous people shooting in the park on July 3, many of whom may be worried the fatal shot could have come from their firearm,” Sgt. Ron Hanavan said in a statement. “If you have those concerns, and would like to have your firearm tested, please contact the DCSO Major Tip Line at 303-660-7579.”
