AURURA, CO (WKOW) – Aurora shooting suspect James Holmes
applied to join a Colorado gun range, but owner denied membership due to "bizarre"
message and behavior.
Owner Glenn Rotkovich said Holmes emailed an application
to join the Lead Valley Range in Byers on June 25 and there was no over warning
signs in that form.
Holmes said he was not a user of illegal drugs or a
convicted felon, so Rotkovich gave Holmes' a call to invite him to a mandatory
orientation the following week.
Rotkovich got Holmes' answering machine and said "it was
bizarre—guttural, freakish at best."
Rotkovich left two other messages but eventually told his
staff to watch for Holmes at the July 1 orientation and to deny him into the
