Family reprimanded Colorado shooter for ‘playing’ with ‘machine gun’ in house days before attack

Suspect Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa used an AR-15 rifle in the shooting, a semiautomatic, military-style weapon common in mass shootings, according to a police official who spoke anonymously with the AP.

Arrest documents released on Tuesday do not describe where the gun itself was purchased, but include details from the man’s family about his interest in guns.

His sister-in-law, whose name has been redacted, told investigators Mr Alissa “was seen playing with a gun she thought looked like a ‘machine gun’” two days before the attack.

Two other individuals, their names also redacted, “were upset with Alissa for playing with the gun in the house and took the gun,” according to an affidavit.
