Police look into report of man with gun at popular park
Garden of the Gods closed briefly Sunday night after someone reported seeing a gunman in the park.
Witnesses told police the man was wearing a bullet proof vest and had numerous guns.
Police sent several officers to the area and questioned at least one man about the report according to a police spokesman.
Later, another officer told KRDO Newschannel 13 they never found anyone with a gun. Police speculated that the witnesses mistook the photography equipment for weapons. Other possibilities-- it was a prank call or the man left before police arrived.
The park was briefly closed but has since reopened.
