BREAKING: Shooting at Denver Protests — ANTIFA TERRORIST SHOOTS PATRIOT PROTESTER DEAD!
“Patriot Rally” and a “BLM-Antifa Soup Drive” took place at Civic Center Saturday afternoon
DENVER — A private security guard is being held as a suspect in a deadly shooting near the Denver Art Museum, according to the Denver Police Department (DPD).
The private security guard in custody was contracted through Pinkerton by 9NEWS. It has been the practice of 9NEWS for a number of months to hire private security to accompany staff at protests.
DPD originally took two people into custody, and later found the second individual, a 9NEWS producer who works in the investigative unit, was not involved in the incident. The producer is no longer in police custody and is not a suspect.
This incident occurred beneath a city police surveillance camera and police confirmed they have footage of what happened. DPD said that a little before 3:50 p.m. there was some sort of verbal altercation just as protesters were leaving the area.
Someone sprayed pepper spray and DPD said that is when at least one shot was fired.
Two guns were found on the scene, according to DPD.
