Denver family evicted three days after mother killed by gunman
DENVER — The Denver Housing Authority says it had no choice but to evict the relatives of a woman killed by a rampaging gunman three days after her slaying because the victim was the only person listed on the lease.
Authorities said 47-year-old Sandra Roskilly was standing on her front porch on Friday when a man armed with a rifle killed her. Police Chief Robert White said a police sniper shot and wounded the gunman as he shot a propane canister in an attempt to detonate it.
The Denver Housing Authority was apologetic about Monday's eviction of the victim's autistic son and mother and issued a statement saying they had no choice under federal policies and regulations.
Family members tell KMGH-TV because Roskilly died without a will, her personal belongings will be held by a public administrator.
