05/03/99
On 04/30/1999, James Royce Washington (PROTECT
IDENTITY), also ~~own as Jim Washington, 6020 Snowbird Drive,
Colorado Springs, Colorado S091S, a whice male born 12/21/1947,
Social Security Account Number 237-70-9180, voluntarily appeared
at the Colorado Springs Resident Agency. Washington was
accompanied by Ron F. Hartmann, also of Colorado Springs. Also
present during a portion of this interliew was Supervisory Senior
Resident Agent Gregory B. Groves. After being advised of Che
nature of this interview and che identicy of the interviewing
agent, Washington provided Che following information:
Washington is employed as a Senior Investigative and
Security Specialist with the Defense Securicy Service (DSS) , 1935
Jamboree, Suite 170, Colorado Springs. Washington has been with
the DSS for 17 years and has a total of 26 years of service with
the Uniced States Government.
Washington advised that he is an avid gun collector and
often goes to gun shows Co sell, trade or purchase guns and
supplies. Sometimes he will take his daughter along with him to
shows.
In lace October 1997, Washington met Ron Hartmann
because they lived near one another and Hartmann had brought
Washington his guns from a show in Pueblo, Colorado, which had to
be canceled due to the blizzard ~~ Colorado at that time. Since
both of them shared an interest L~ gun collecting L~d frequented
the same shows, they agreed to start going to shows cogether and
sharing the expenses of obtaining a booth or table. In addition,
one man could watch the table and their inventor/, while the
other one walked around the show to see what was available.
On the weekend of 11/21-22/1998, Washington and
Hartmann went to the Tanner Gun Show at the Denver Merchandise
Mart in Commerce City, Colorado and set up two tables together.
On Sunday 11/22/1999, Washingcon did not have his daughter with
him; it was just he and Hartmann at their tables.
On Sunday afternoon (11/22/1999), washington was
sitting in a chair facing to his right, lcoking at Hartmann.
Washington guessed that it was sometime after lunoh. Hartmann

was talking to someone across the table from him when a young
female and a young male approached their tables and began talking
to Hartmann. Washington stated that Hartmann was standing and he
recalled Hartmann aSked the female for her license and saw the
girl give it to him. Washington could not see the male clearly
due to the vertical gun ra~~ on the tables, which blocked his
view of the male. He saw the Eemale clearly. He stated that he
even looked up when he heard Ron say something like "You don't
look 18".
Washington advised that sinoe the shootings at
Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado, he now believes
this female to be Robyn Anderson. He described her as having
shorter hair than she has now, as determined by her photographs
on the teleVision and in the newspapers. Anderson was wearing
jeans and a light colored top. She had a shoulder bag, possibly
of denim material, which had a flap but no snaps.
Washington stated thae after the shotgun was sold, Ron
Hartmann handed the gun to .~derson, but the male took it. He
heard Hartmar.n say something to the effect of 'it's nice of you to
carry it" to the male. As the couple walked away, Hartmann
turned to Washington and said "That girl just turned 18."
Washington stated that he had no recollection of the male because
his view was blocked by the gun rack and there were several
people around the taOle at this time, some of whom were asking
washington questions. Neither Washington nor Hartmann could
identify anyone around their tables who could provide any
additional assistance,
Following the initial newS reports about the shootings
and the weapons involved, Washington did not think anything about
this particular show and their sales of guns at the TL~er Gun
Show. He wondered who had sold the weapons which were used in
the shootings. After Robyn Anderson was identified and her
picture appeared on the news, Washington immediately recognized
her as the female who had purchased the shotgun from Hartmann.
He telephonically contacted Hartmann and told him of this fact,
but Hartmann did not believe Washington at first, because the
news reports did not mention thee Anderson had purchased the
shotgun.

James Royce Washington


Washington stated that he wished to cooperate fully
with this investigation. Washington does have concerns for his
personal safety due to the nlli~erous leaks of information to the
media about ~~e progress of the investigation. He feels that
nartmann legally sold a shotgun to an 18 year old individual and
did nothing illegal and cannot be blamed for what happened at
Columbine High School. Washington fears that if his identity goe
oue. people would attack him or his family and vandalize r~s home
out of vengeance for what happened. He does not believe people
would act rationally toward either him or Hartmar~ if their
identities were divulged.
Washington could provide no additional informacion at
this time and the interview was terminated at this point.

FEDERAL BUREAU OF' INYESTIGATION

05/03/99

On 04/30/1999, Ronald Frank Har~mann (PROTECT


IDENTITY), also known as Ron Hartmann, 3835 Blazingwood Way,
Colorado Springs, Colorado 80918, a white male born 08/08/1939,
Social Security Account Number 150-30-9559, voluntarily appeared
at the Colorado Springs Resident Agenoy. Hartmann was
accompanied by James R. Washington, also of Colorado Springs.
Also present during a portion of this interliew was Super;iso~/
Senior Resident Agent Gregory 8. Groves. After being advised of
the nature of this ~nterview and the identity of the interviewing
agent, Eartmann prOVided the following information:
Hartmann served 20 years in the Armed Forces, with his
time split between the united States Navy (1957 - 1961) and the
United States Air Force (USAF) 11961 - 1977). uoon retirement
from the USAF, he became a oivilian employee of the United States
Government, first at Fort Carson in Colorado Springs and then
with the Defense Logistics Agency in Ogden, crtah. Due to
downsizing on the part of the United States Government, when the
program he was assigned to in Utah was shut down, he retired from
the Government and is ~~rrently unemployed.
Hartmann advised that he is an avid gun collector and
has been for most of his adult life. Hartmann enjoys going to
gun shows because it is usually a good gathering place for
serious collectors and he has gotten to know many individuals
over the years. Sometimes he goes to these shows to look around
and see if there is anything he wishes to buy or trade for and
sometimes he gees and sets up a table or booth and sells some of
his guns and associated supplies; such as knives and reloading
supplies.
Hartmann described the shows in the Fall and Spring as
being the best ones to go to in order to buy, sell or trade
items. Two to four times per year, Hartma~~ will set up a booth
or table and sell items. In addition to this, he estimated that
he attends about six to seven shows a year when he is not
selling. Mostly he sets up a table or booth at the Sartoma Gun
Show in Colorado Springs and a few shows, including the Tanner
G~~ Shows at the Merohandise Mart, in the Denver area.

,P,g. _-,,-_

In the Fall of 1997, around the time of the bli4zard,


both Hartmann and Jim Washington, had set up individual tables at
a gun show in ~ueblo, Colorado. Hartmann was staying in ~ueblo
and Washington had oome down and set up his table on Friday and
had returned to Colorado Springs, Due to the blizzard,
Washington could not return to Pueblo and the ShoW was canceled
due to the conditions, Many dealers had displays set up but
could not ceme and retrieve their guns for sOme time. Hartmar~
told the coordinator of the show that he would take Washington's
guns back to Colorado Springs with him and return them to
Washington, as long as someone else inventoried them before
Hartmann left. This was dane and Hartmann met Washington for the
first time when he returned Washington's guns to him, Due to
their mutual interests in guns and in going to these gun shows,
they decided to begin going to the shows together, rather than
separately.
During the weeka~d of 11/21-22/1996, Hartmann and
Washington went to the Tanner Gun Show at the Denver Merchandise
Mart in Commerce City, Colorado. They set up two tables side-by-
side at this show. At eaoh end of the tables, there was a
horizontal gun rack containing a few quality guns with a sign
saying "00 Net Touch", Which either Washington or Hartmann would
pick up and display to a potenti~ buyer. At the very oenter of
the table, straddling the two, was a vertioal rack oontaining
older guns, whioh Hartmann called "beaters', whioh the public
could handle if they chose to do so. Hartmann advised that at
this show, they had approximately 12 to IS guns for sale in
addition to knives, scopes and reloading supplies and e~~ipment.
Hartmann advised that on Saturday (11/21/1996), there
were a lot of people at their tables, but they did not sell much
invsntory. On sunday (11/22/1998), there were a lot of people
milling around; mere than normally observed on a Sunday according
to aartmann.
Hartmann advised that if you were standing in front of
their tables looking at them, washington was on the right side,
sitting on a chair facing to his right and Hartmann was standing
9n the left side.
Hartmann believes it was Sunday afternoon, sometime
after lunch, when a young female came up to their tables

JC- 001-008250

Ronald Frank Hartmann 3


,l'>8' _..::--_
accompanied by a young male. The female stood facing Hartmann
and the male stood with one arm resting on the vertical gun rack
in the center of the cables. the female said to Hartmann, "r
would like to, buy that shotgu..'1." Hartmann said "This one here,
the double barrel?" She replied "Yes." He asked 'How old are
you?" and she replied '18". He stated that she was very young
looking and so he asked her for some identification "Can r see
your driver's license?' Without any hesitation, she reached inco
her wallet produced a Colorado Drivers License for Hartmann to
see. Upon inspection, Hartmann determined that she was in faot
18 years old, just having passed her birthday a few weeks before
the show.
Hartmann stated that the price tag on the shotgun said
$245.00 and he told her the price. The female pUlled out a
wallet from her bag and counted out the money. Hartmann stated
that as best as he could recall it was mostly sao bills and there
were no large bills in che total. She handed him the cash and he
counted it out. Once he was satisfied that she had paid the
correct amount, Hartmann reached for the shotgun and removed it
from the rack and handed it to her. At this point, the male
accompanying her, reached over ar.d took the shotgun from
Hartmann's hands. Hartmar~ said he made a statement to the
effect of "Are you going co be a gentleman and carry it for her?"
and the male replied "Yes."
Hartmann described both the male and female as being
nice looking kids and had no reason to question them. He
described the male as being about 5'11" tall, since he is S'10",
and the female as being about $'6" or eo. The male was taller
than the female. The male was wearing a dark, short-sleeve
shirt. Hartmann could not recall what the female was wearing at
the time. He just recalled that both were clean-cut. Hartmann
went on to say that the female had blond hair, not real long and
she a ro~~d face and was of medium build; not skir~y, nOt fat.
He also described the female as being timid in her deme~~or. It
was Hartmann's impression that she was nervous because she did
not aak any questions I1bout the gun. Hartmann put this down to
the fact that she had never purchased 11 gu..~ before.
After their transaction was completed, the couple left
liartmann's tables and wa.lked away. Hartmann turned towards
Washington and remarked "Tha.t girl just turned 16,"

• Pasc - - - - - -
Hartmann advised that he did not initially think about
this incident following the tragedy at Columbine High School
until Washington called him On the telephone to remind him of the
girl. After ~he media coverage of the shooting and his
discussions with Washington, Hartmann now believes that the
female who purchased the shotgun from him at the 11/22/1998
Ta~~er Gun Show was Robyn Anderson. He is 100% sure of this. He
is also 80% sure that her male companion was DYlan Klebold.
Hartmann also advised that he has an image in his mind tha~ while
he was conducting the transaction with Anderson and Klebold,
across the aisle from his tables was a young ~Ale holding a pump
shot~un, who appeared to be waiting for them. Hartmann could not
identify this male.
Hartman stated that the shot~un &~derson purchased from
him was a Stevens Model 31LD, 12-gauge double barreled shot~un,
serial number A077513, with a 28" oarrel and the choke .....as full
and modified. Har~mann also advised that the shotgun was
mechanically in geod condition, had a walnut stock, the finish
was good and that the bluing on the barrel was very streaky, as
if the original bluing had worn off and someone had tried to re-
blue it. Hartmann was able to determine this from some old
records he keeps for insurance purposes.
Hartmann stated that there was no paperwork produced
for this sale and no receipt was given or asked for. Hartmann
advised that he had personally purchased this gun sometime before
this show, but he could not determine exactly when and where he
had done so.
Hartmann stated that he keeps a record of the
manufacturer, the model numbers and the serial numbers of all of
the guns he has for insurance purposes and is constantly updating
these records as he bUys and sells guns. When he updates his
records, he discards the old records.
Hartmann advised that once they left his stand, he did
not observe them again. He and Washington did gun shows the
following weekend in Colorado springs (Sertoma); in about
February 1999 in Colorado Springs and the T~~er Gun Show at the
Denver Merchandise Mart in March 1999. At none of these
subsequent gun shows did Hartmann observe either Anderson or
Klebold.

Hartmann stated that while he is reluctant to be
providing this information, he felt an obligation to do so. He
wanted it clearly understood that he was coming forward as soon
as practical After he became aware of the situation that the
shotgun which he sold in November 199B, was sold to Robyn
Anderson accompanied by Oylan Klebold. He ~~ressed ooncerns for
his personal safety due to all of the leaks of information being
made to the media. Hartmann stated that he made a legal sale of
the shotgun to an individUal, 18 years of age or older, and had
broken no laws. Hartmann is afraid that if his identity is
somehow released to the media, he will become a target for
vengeance and will be viewed as responsible for the tragedy at
Columbine High School.
Hartmann turned over to the interviewer a hand·drawn
diagram Which he had used while describing the layoue of his
booth and the positions of all parties at the time of the sale of
the shotgun. In addition, he advised that the table behind
theirs was oocupied by the Golden Gun Club and when you faced
outward, to their left were three tables full of ammunition being
sold by some people from Pocatello, Idaho.

This is to infDr~ you of the status of the Columbine


Shootlng investigatlon by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco &
Firearms in relation to the firearm portion of the
invest:igation,

To date, a search of the Bureau of A.T.F. Federal Firearms


Licensee's database is being conducted and compared to the
Tanner Gun shDw list for the dates that the three (3) long
guns were purchased by Anderson for Harris and Klebold.
Once this list has been generated, the current or past
FFL's names that match the Tanner Gun Show list will be
contacted via interview by inspectors of our agency. These
inspectors have been given a list of questions to ask these
present or past FFL's and requested to review their bound
books, if applicable. This search of information is to
determine if Anderson is subject to a federal felony if an
ATF For~ 4473 (yellow form) was completed or if an FFL is
subject to a federal felony if the firearm transactions
were conducted 'off paper". There is also the possibility
that the three (3) transactions were conducted by a private
party's and if this is the case, no one is subject to any
criminal penalties. I will keep you informed as this
portion of the investigation continues.

If you have any questions please call me at (303) 844-3421.

On 04/30/1999, Ronald Frank Hartmann (PROTECT
IDENTITY), also known as Ron Hartmann, 3835 SlazingwQod Way,
Colorado Springs, Colorado 80918, a white male born 08/08/1939,
Social Security Account Number 150-30-9559, voluntarily appeared
at the Colorado Springs Resident Agency. Hartmann was
acccmpanied by James R. Washington, also of Colorado Springs.
Also present during a portion of this interview was Supervisory
Senior Resident Agent Gregory 8. Groves. After being advised of
the nature of this interview and the identity of the inte~liewing
agent, Hartmann provided the following information,
Hartmann served 20 years in the Armed Forces, with his
time split between the United States Navy (1957 - 1961) and the
United States Air Force (USAF) (1961 - 1977). Uoon retLrement
from the USAF, he became a civilian employee of the United States
Government, first at Fort Carson in Colorado Springs ~~d then
wlth the Defense Logistics Agency in Ogden, Utah. Due co
downsizing on the part of the United States Government, when the
program he was assigned to in Utah was shut down, he retired from
the Government and is currently unemployed.
Hartmann advised that he is an avid gun collector and
has been for most of his adult llfe. Hartmann enjoys going to
gun shows because it is usually a good gathering place for
serious collectors and he has gotten to know many individuals
over the years. Sometimes he goes to these shows to look around
and see if there is anything he wishes to buy or trade for and
sometimes he goes and sets up a table Or booth and sells some of
his guns and associated supplies; such as knives and reloading
supplies.
Hartmann described the shows in the Pall and Spring as
being the best ones to go to in order to buy, sell or trade
items. TwO to four times per year, Hartmann will set up a booth
or table and sell items. In addition to this, he estimated that
he attends about six to seven shows a year when he is not
selling. Mostly he sets up a table or booth at the Sertoma Gun
Show in Colorado Springs and a few shows, including the Tanner
Gun Shows at the Merchandise Mart, in the Denver area.

Ronald Frank Hartmann Page _

In the Fell of 1997, around the time of the blizzard,


both Hartmann and Jim Washington, had set up individual tables at
a gun show in Pueblo, Colorado. Hartmann was staying in Pueblo
and Washington had come down and set up his table on Friday and
had returned to Colorado Springs. Due to the blizzard,
Washington could net return to Pueblo and the show was oanoeled
due to the conditions. Many dealers had displays set up but
could not corne and retrieve their guns for some time. Hartmann
told the ooordinator of the show that he would take Washington's
guns back to Colorado Springs with h~m and return them to
Washington, as long as someone else inventoried them bef~re
Hartmann left. This was done and Hartmann met Washington for the
first time when he returned washington's guns to him. Due to
their mutual interests in guns and in going to these gun shows,
they decided to begin going to the shows together, rather than
separately.
During the weekend of 11/21-22/1998, Harcmann and
Washington went to the Tanner Gun Show at the Denver Merchandise
Mart ~n Commerce City, Colorado. They set up two tables sid~-by­
side at this show. At each end of the tables, there was a
horizontal gun rack containing a f~w quality guns with a sign
saying "Do Not Touch", which either Washington or Hartmann would
pick up and display to a potential buyer. At the very cent~r of
the tabl~, straddling the two, was a vertical rack containing
older guns, which Hartmann called "beaters", which the publ i c
could handle if they chose to do so. Hartmann advised that at
this show, t:hey had apprOXimately 12 to 15 guns for sale in
addition to knives, scopes and reloading supplies and e~jipment:.
Hartmann advised that on Saturday (11/21/1998), there
were a lot of people at their tables, but they did not s~ll much
inventory. On Sunday {11/22/1998), ther~ were a lot of people
milling around; mOre than normally observed on a Sunday according
to Hartmann.
Hartmann advised that if you were standing in front of
their tables looking at: them, Washington was on the right side,
sicting on a chair facing to his right and Hartmann was standing
on the leEt side.
Hartmann believes it was Sunday afternoon, sometime
after lunch, when a young female came up to their tables

accompanied by a young male. The female stood facing Hartmann


and the male stood w~th one ar~ resting on the vertical gun rack
in the center of the tables. The female said to Hartmann, "I
would like to buy that shotgun." Hartmann said "This one here,
the double ba.rze L?" She replied "Yes." He asked "Hew old are
you?" and she replied "18". He stated that she was very yeung
looking and so he asked her for some identification 'lean I see
your driver's license?" Without any hes i t ac i.cn , she reached into
her wallet produced a Colorado Drivers License for Hartmann to
see. upen inspection, Har~mann determined that she was in fact
18 years old, just haVing passed her birthday a few weeks before
the show.
Har~mann stated that the price tag on the shotgun said
$245.00 and he told her the priee. The female pulled aut a
wallet from her bag and counted ouc the money. Hartmann stated
that as best as he could recall it was mostly $20 bills and there
were no large bills in the total. She handed him the' cash and he
counted it out. Once he was satisfied that she had paid the
correct amount, Hartmann reached for the shotgun and removed it
from the rack and handed it to her. At this point, the male
aocompanying her, reached over and took the shotgun from
Hartmann's hands. Hartmann said he made a statement to the
effeot of "Are you going to be a gentleman and cazry it for her?"
and the male repl ied "Yes."
Hartmann described both the male and female as being
nice looking kids and had no reason to question them. He
described the male as being about 5'11 11 tall, since he is 5'10 H t
and the female as being about 5'6" or so. The male was taller
than the female. The male was wearing a dark, short-sleeve
shirt. Hartmann could not reoall what the female was wearing at
the time. He just recalled that both were elean-out. Hartmann
went en to say that the female had blond hair. not real long and
she a round face and was of medium build; not skinny, not fat.
He also described the female as being timid in her demeanor. It
was Hartmann's impression that she was nervous beoause she did
net ask any questions about the gun. Hartmann put chis down to
the faot that she had never purchased a gun before.
After their transaction was completed, the couple left
Hartmann's tables and walked away. Hartmann turned towards

Ronald Frank Hartmann P,ge _-=-__


Hartmann advised that he did not initially think about
this incident following the tragedy at Columbine High School
until Washington called him on the telephone to remind him of the
girl. After the media coverage of the shooting and his
discussions with Washington, Hartmann now believes that the
female who purchased the shotgun from him at the 11/22/1998
Tanner Gun Show was Robyn Anderson. He is 100% sure of this. He
is also 80% sure that her male companion was Dylan Klebold.
Hartmann also advised that he has an image in his m~nd that while
he was conducting the transaction with Anderson and Klebold,
acrosS the aisle from his tables was a young male holding a pump
shotgun, who appeared to be waiting for them. Hartmar~ could not
identify this male.
Hartman stated that the shotgun Anderson purchased from
him was a Stevens Model 311D, 12-gauge double barreled shotgun,
serial number A077513, with a 28" barrel and the choke was full
and modified. Hartmann also advised that the shotgun was
mechanically in goad condition, had a walnut stock, the finish
was good and that the blUing on the barrel was very streaky, as
if the original bluing had worn off and someone had triad to re-
blue it. Hartmann was able to determine this from some old
records he keeps for insurance purposes.
Hartmann stated that there was no paperwork produced
for this sale and no receipt was given or asked for. Hartmann
advised that he had personally purchased this gun sometime before
this show, but he could not determine exactly when and where he
had done so.
Hartmann stated that he keeps a record of the
manufacturer, the model numbers and the serial numbers of all of
the guns he has for insurance purposes and is constantly updating
these records as he bUyS and sells guns. When he updates his
records. he discards the old records.
Hartmann advised that once they left his stand, he did
not observe them again. He and Washington did gun shows the
following weekend in Colorado Springs (Sertoma); in about
February 1999 in Colorado Springs and the Tanner Gun Show at the
Denver Merchandise Mart in March 1999. At none of these
subsequent gun shows did Hartmann observe either Anderson or
Klebold.

Cunnmiarinn ¢( FD<102 of Ronald Frank Hartmann


Hartmann stated that while he is reluctant to be
providing this information, he felt an obligation to do so. He
wanted it clearly understood that he was ooming forward as soon
as practical after he became aware of the situation chat the
shot~~n which he sold in November 1998, was sold to Robyn
Anderson accompanied by Dylan Kleoold. He expressed concerns for
his personal safety due to all of the leaks of information being
made to the media. Hartmann stated that he made a legal sale of
the shotgun to an individual, 18 years of age or older, and had
broken no laws. Hartmann is afra~d that if his identity is
somehow released to the media, he will become a target for
vengeance and will be viewed as responsible for the tragedy at
Columbine High School.
Hartmann turned over to the interviewer a hand-drawn
diagram which he had used while desoribing the layout of his
booth and the positions of all parties at the time of the sale of
the shotgun. In addition, he advised that the table behind
theirs waS oocupied by the Golden Gun Club and when you faced
outward, to their left were three tables full of ammunition being
sold by some people from Pocatello, Idaho.
Hartmann had no additional information and at that
point the interview was terminated. He did advise that if he
recalled any additional information, he would contaot that the
interViewing agent.

FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION

05/03(99
On 04/30/1999, James Royce Washington (PROTECT
IDENTITY), also known as Jim Washington, 6020 Snowbird Drive,
Colorado Springs, Colorado 80918, a white male born 12/21/1947,
Social Security Account Number 237-70-9180, voluntarily appeared
at the Colorado Springs Resident Agency. Washington was
accompanied by Ron F. Harcmafu', also of Colorado Springs. Also
present during a portion of this interview was Supervisory Senior
Resident Agent Gregory B. Groves. After being advised of the
nature of this interview and the identity of the interviewing
agent, Washington provided the follOWing information:
washington is employed as a Senior Investigative and
Security Specialist with the Defense Security Service (DSS) , 1935
Jamboree, suite 170, Colorado Springs. Washington has been with
the DSS for 17 years and has a total of 26 years of service with
the United States Government,
Washington advised that he is an avid ~~n collector and
often goes to gun shews to sell, trade or purchase guns and
supplies. Sometimes he will take his daughter along with him to
shows.
In late October 1997, Washington met Ron Hartmann
because they lived near one another and Hartmann had brought
Washington his guns from a show in Pueblo, Colorado, which had to
be canceled due to the blizzard in Colorado at that time. since
both of them shared an interest in gun collecting and frequented
the same shows, they agreed to start going to shows together and
sharing the expenses of obtaining a booth or table. In addition,
one man could watch the table and their inventory, while the
other one walked around the show to see what was available.
On the weekend of 11/21-22/1998, Washington and
Hartmann went to the Tanner Gun Show at the Denver Merchandise
Mart in Commerce City, Colorado and set up two tables together.
On Sunday 11/22/1999, Washington did not have his daughter with
him; it was just he and Hartmann at their tables.
On Sunday afternoon (11/22/1999), Washington was
sitting in a chair facing to his right, looking at Hartmann.
Washington guessed that it was sometime after lunch. Hartmann

was talking to som~one across che table from him when a young
female and a young male approached their tables and began talking
to Hartmann. Washington stated that Hartmann was standing and he
recalled Hartmann asked the female for her license and saw the
girl give it to him. Washington could not see the male clearly
due to the vertical gun rack on the tables, which blocked his
view of ehe male. He saw the female clearly. He stated that he
even looked up when he heard Ron say something like "You don't
look 18".
Washington advised that since the shootings at
Columbine High School in ~iteleton, Colorado, he now believes
this female to be Robyn Anderson. He described her as having
shorter hair than she has now, as determined by her photographs
on the television and in the newspapers, Anderson was wearing
jeans and a light colored top. She had a shoulder bag, possibly
of denim mater~al, which had a flap but no snaps.
Washington stated that after the shotgun was sold, Ron
Hartmann handed the gun to Anderson, but the male took ie. He
heard Hartmann say something to the effect of "it's nice of you to
carry it" to the male. As the couple walked away, Hartmann
turned to washington and said "That girl just turned 18."
washington stated that he had no recollection of the male because
his view was blocked by the gun rack and there were several
people around the table at this time, some of whom were asking
Washington questions. Neither Washington nor Hartrnafu~ could
identify anyone around their tables who could provide any
additional assistance.
Following the initial news reports about the shootings
and the weapons involved, Washington did not think anything about
this particular shOW and their sales of guns at the Tanner Gun
Show. He wondered who had sold the weapons which were used in
the shootings. After Robyn Anderson was identified and her
picture appeared on the news, Washington immediately recognized
her as the female who had purchased the shotgun from Hartmann.
He telephonically coneacted Hartmann and told him of this fact,
but Hartmann did not believe Washington at first, because the
news reports did not mention that Anderson had purchased the
shotgun.

JC. 001-008273
174A-DN-57419

Continuation of FD-:ID2 of James Royce Washington


Washington stated that he wished to cooperate fully
with this investigation. Washington does have concerns for his
personal safety due to the numerous leaks of information to the
media about the progress of the investigation. He feels that
Hartmann legally sold a shotgun to an 18 year old individual and
did nothing illegal ~~d cannot be blamed for what happened at
Columbine High School. Washington fears that if his identity got
out, people would attack him Or his family and vandalize his heme
OUt of vengeance for what happened. He does not believe people
would act rationally toward either him or Hartmann if their
identities were divulged.
Washington could provide no additional information at
this time and the interview was terminated at this point.
