“Witnesses reported that Killis threatened university staff and students,” Gayle Perez of the sheriff’s office wrote in a news release. “Killis, who has prior military experience, talked about buying bulletproof vests, semi-automatic rifles, shotguns and other weapons and said that he liked to kill people.”
The sheriff’s office began monitoring Killis, who lives on campus, on Monday. Detectives noted that a box of ammunition was exposed inside the suspect’s vehicle along with a bulletproof vest and a case that appeared large enough to hold a rifle or shotgun.
A search warrant was obtained and Killis was detained off-campus.
“When asked if he was carrying weapons on his person for officers’ safety, Killis told officers that he did not have weapons, but he admitted that he had weapons in his truck,” Perez wrote. “Detectives executed the search warrant and found a loaded semi-automatic rifle, a shotgun and a pistol. There were also several fully loaded high-capacity magazines installed tactically along with an ammunition box filled with additional rounds of ammunition. Assorted tactical equipment was also located on the vehicle. ”
Authorities also found another handgun with about 100 rounds of ammunition and other “suspicious” items in the suspect’s home.
Killis was suspected of illegally carrying/possessing a weapon on a college campus.
“I commend the information that is presented and on which we acted quickly,” said Pueblo County Sheriff Kirk M. Taylor. “By reporting the suspicions to our officers in a timely manner, we were able to quickly investigate and take this person into custody before he could harm himself. Due to an overabundance of precautions, there will be an additional law enforcement presence at the university and our officers will be available to address any concerns from students and faculty. We continue to encourage anyone who sees or hears something suspicious or threatening that involves an educational setting to report it immediately. ”
The sheriff’s office is working with CSU-Pueblo officials, local law enforcement, and federal law enforcement agencies.
