A neighbor might have helped stop a Colorado man from killing three people as he roamed around with a military-style rifle, but the state’s open carry law apparently prevented police from following up on her concerned report.
Naomi Bettis called 911 Saturday after spotting her neighbor, who she recognized but did not know by name, walking outside his home with an AR-15 rifle, reported the Denver Post.
“He did have a distraught look on his face,” Bettis said. “It looked like he had a rough couple days or so.”
