A heavily armed man who entered a Colorado amusement park ended up killing himself before he had a chance to kill anyone else, the Associated Press reported.
Diego Barajas Medina, 20, was found dead with a self-inflicted gunshot wound in a bathroom at Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park on Saturday morning. He was lying next to words scrawled on the wall that read, “I am not a killer.”
Medina apparently entered the park while it was closed, armed with an AR-style rifle, a semi-automatic handgun and explosives and was wearing body armor and tactical clothing, similar to what a police SWAT team member might wear, authorities said.A message saying, “I am not a killer, I just wanted to get into the caves,” was written on a wall of the bathroom where Medina’s body was found lying on the floor, Garfield County Sheriff Lou Vallario said. Nearby was a handgun and explosive devices, some real and some fake, he said. The AR-style rifle was on a counter nearby along with a duty belt holding several ammunition magazines.
Vallario could not say for certain that Medina wrote the message.
