    Maybe there having trouble getting in touch with next of kin, wonder if it was an indoor range ? Hope the other woman pulls threw ? sad turn of events. I just joined an Izaac Walton, since are other range was shut down do to a couple of rockheads. I like what see when it comes to safety/rules, You basically police each other, every member takes a 2 hour class and at the end theres a 40 question test on what to do and what not to do on the fire line, every member is a range officer.

    now making it sound like a double suicide?

    ARAPAHOE COUNTY, Colo. -- One woman was fatally shot and another was injured at the Cherry Creek State Park Shooting Range Monday afternoon, the Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office said.

    The survivor of the double shooting suffered a head injury and is undergoing surgery at a local hospital. Investigators will need to talk to her to determine whether the shootings were accidental or intentional.

    Both women were sharing a shooting lane at the Family Shooting Center at 4201 S. Parker Road, when the incident occurred. According to authorities, they had arrived at the range around 1:30 p.m. to do some target practice with small caliber guns. The shooting was reported shortly before 3 p.m.

    "Apparently the two ladies were shot simultaneously," said Doug Hamilton, owner of the Family Shooting Center. "The 'how' and the 'why' we really don't know."

    He said they were not regulars but did seem to be in good spirits when they arrived.

    A surveillance tape was reviewed and while it did not show the incident it did confirm no third party was involved.

    "We believe it was contained within this stall and the only two people that were in the stall at the time we believe were the two victims." said Capt. Louie Perea from the Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office referring to Stall 18 at the range.

    Several witnesses were also interviewed including one who saw the women fall to the ground.

    Deputies say the two women were both 29 years old.

    Their names have not been released.

    This story is developing, check back for updates….

    "We are not able to confirm which is which because they are twin sisters," Cpt. Louie Perrea from Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office said.

    This is an outdoor shooting range. My wife and I go there several times per year. They keep security tight and have several staff on hand watching the lanes.

    This is definitely a sad story.

    still no updates. Parents are coming to CO to identify the girls. Investigators not saying whether indications are accident or intentional. Can not picture any scenario where you have a simultaneous accidental shootings that critically injure one and kills the other.

    If it was accidental,it would be a 1 in a billion chance,maybe a misfire,or dropped gun discharging and striking #1 in the head then passing thru and striking #2 in the head

    Sad and quirky all at the same time.

    I can almost see the Australian Press however, ridiculing our "desire" for firearms. The two did have to travel to the United States in order to even be in close quarters to them for the chance to use one.

    Firearms are banned in Australia so is that why they decided to come to our country? Loads of unanswered questions.

    It would appear to support the idea that even if you ban guns, suicidal people will go to the other side of the planet to find one.

    "Surviving Twin Sister Talking To Police Now."


    Edit: although not listed in the link above, the breaking news email I received from the local 7 News station states:

    "Police: Twin Sisters Had Suicide Pact

    Authorities have determined that the bizarre shooting at the shooting range was
    not a shootout or a failed murder-suicide but a suicide pact."
