UPDATE:

Larimer County Sheriff Justin Smith took to Facebook Wednesday morning to say he will not enforce the red flag order, calling Susan Holmes request a "fraud."

According to the law, someone must meet certain conditions, such as living with or be related to the gun owner in order to qualify for the extreme risk protection order.

Susan Homes request does not meet any of these conditions.

 

A Fort Collins woman is using a new law that allows her to petition a state court to order the temporary removal of firearms from a person who may present a danger to others or themselves.

According to the law, someone must meet certain conditions, such as living with or be related to the gun owner in order to qualify for the extreme risk protection order.

Susan Holmes is asking the state to remove firearms from CSU police officer Phillip Morris, citing that they have a "child in common." Morris was cleared in the shooting death of Holmes son on July 1, 2017 after she called police to report her son had a knife and was threatening to kill his brother while high on THC.

The Coloradoan Reported this back in 2017 when the shooting occurred:

Police asked Jeremy Holmes to drop the hunting knife he was holding more than 40 times before fatally shooting the 19-year-old man July 1 near the Colorado State University campus in Fort Collins.

 

When a judge hears the case on Thursday, Holmes tells FOX31 that she will argue that her "interpretation" of what "have a child in common" actually means. In the filing Homes says the officer "used his firearm to recklessly and violently threaten and kill 19-year-old Jeremy Holmes."
