CSU Pueblo student arrested after weapons, ammo found inside truck, apartment

Pueblo County detectives arrested a student at Colorado State University Pueblo Tuesday after he was discovered to have several guns and hundreds of rounds of ammunition inside his truck and on-campus apartment.

The Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office arrested Robert James Killis, 24, for unlawfully carrying or possessing a weapon on a university campus Tuesday after detectives executed a search warrant at his Walking Stick Village apartment Tuesday.

The sheriff’s office said Killis had recently threatened staff and students at the university. He had previous military experienced, and the sheriff’s office said witnesses told investigators he was talking about buying body armor, rifles, shotguns and other guns “and saying that he liked to kill people.”

On Monday, according to the sheriff’s office, detectives started monitoring Killis and could see an ammunition box, bulletproof vest and a case sitting out in the open inside his pickup truck.
