DENVER (AP) — A Democrat-led state House committee is hearing a package of Republican-sponsored gun bills. One bill being heard would allow concealed carry on public school grounds. Another would repeal gun magazine limits that were adopted after the 2012 mass shootings at an Aurora movie theater and at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut. The House panel is expected to reject most, if not all of the five bills.

LAKEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Police say a Lakewood man who had been reported missing almost a month ago was found dead in a Denver-area reservoir. Police and the Jefferson County Coroner's Office have identified him as 49-year-old Michael Edlin. Police say their investigation is continuing. They have no reason now to suspect a crime led to Edlin's death.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico's congressional delegation has concerns with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency over delays in compensation for expenses and damages caused by Gold King Mine spill. The delegation's five members say they signed on to a letter sent to the EPA. They're asking the agency to process reimbursement claims submitted by the state and the Navajo Nation and to set up a claims office to begin processing compensation for victims.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — His voice cracking with emotion, Peyton Manning said good bye to the game he loved at a news conference packed with friends, family and laughter. He ended it with his signature "Omaha!" and then posed for pictures. Manning, who turns 40 this month, said the timing was simply right to call an end to his 18-year NFL career.
