Susan Holmes talks to members of the media outside an 8th Judicial District courtroom on Jan. 16 after a judge denied her request for an extreme risk protection order against Cpl. Philip Morris. Morris, a Colorado State University police officer, was involved in the shooting death of her son, and Holmes sought to have his guns taken away using the state’s new red flag law.

A Fort Collins woman is wanted for arrest on suspicion of perjury after lying on her red flag petition against the police officer who killed her son.

The Larimer County Sheriff’s Office issued the warrant for Susan Holmes on suspicion of first-degree perjury and attempt to influence a public servant, spokesman Jered Kramer said. Holmes has not been arrested, Kramer said.

Online court records show the warrant was issued Jan. 23, one week after Holmes appeared in court to argue that the state confiscate Colorado State University police Cpl. Philip Morris‘ guns for a year. Morris shot and killed Holmes’ son, Jeremy Holmes, in 2017. The warrant was first reported by The Coloradoan.

Susan Holmes said on the petition that she and Morris shared a child together. In an interview with The Denver Post, she said that wasn’t true but that she had a legal theory she planned to use to justify her statement. She declined to explain the legal theory.
