Glenn Martin was killed by a stray bullet at Rainbow Falls campground in remote Douglas County on Friday, July 3, 2015.

CASTLE ROCK, Colo. — The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office said Thursday it is offering to test rifles to rule out connections to the death of a man who was shot and killed by a stray bullet while camping in the Pike National Forest last week.

Glenn Martin was killed Friday after being struck by a stray bullet while camping in Rainbow Falls Park.

“We recognize that there were numerous people shooting in the park … many of whom may be worried the fatal shot could have come from their firearm,” the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release.

Martin’s family said he was killed in front of his grandchildren while camping. Shooting is prohibited in the area but shell casings still litter the trails.

The sheriff’s office said anyone who believes they were in the area shooting and wants their firearm tested should call the sheriff’s office tip line at 303-660-7579.
