A Brief View of Denver Shooting-- Video

 


An attorney of the family of the suspect in Denver shooting argued that he was acting in self-defense when he opened fire, an attorney for the suspect’s family said.

The footages shows, victim holding a can of what appears to be pepper spray,  and used the spray and the man opened fire, though it’s not clear in the photos which occurred first.

A man was shot and killed amid near Civic Center Park on Saturday while two protests in place named as a “Patriot Rally,”  and a “BLM Antifa Soup Drive.” The victim of the shooting was a 49-year-old man named Lee Keltner, his son confirmed to the Denver Post on Sunday, though his identity has not been released by city officials. 

 The victim's son told reporters that his father, a Navy veteran who ran a hat-making business in Brighton, was not affiliated with any group but went to the demonstrations Saturday to show support for law enforcement.

The killer identified as Matthew Dolloff of 30-year-old,  is being held for investigation of first-degree murder, according to police. Dolloff is being held at the Denver Detention Center without bond, according to jail records.

Certain claims raised there as he was working as a private security guard at the time and not participating in the protest, though city officials say they have no record he was licensed to do such work in Denver.
