    those criminals are lucky that they didnt rob one of the many concealed handgun permit holders like myself and many many other colorado citizens....the outcome might not have been in the crooks favor, being that they threatened his life by pointing a deadly weapon at him. people need to realize that the police arent everywhere, and the crooks know this unfortunately. people need to be more aware of their surroundings!

    Were the victims not identified because they had ski masks on? Great editing.

    @KKTV, what point are you trying to make by identifying the two men armed with "Semi-Auto" handguns. Why not just say they robbed a man at gun point. These are the type of stories written in a way to imply that Semi-auto handguns should be feared. Fear the criminal, not the tool (i.e. Gun, knife, crow-bar, axe, bat, pencil, ect..)used by him. Next time, just stick with handgun.

      We were reporting the type of gun because it was specified by police. We typically try to describe the type of weapon the suspect(s) carries if police report it. The more we can describe about a suspect, the better, to help police make an arrest.

    Did the victim at least get the license number of the vehicle?
