The mother of a right-wing protester killed in a deadly shooting in Denver on Saturday spoke out in a Facebook post over the weekend, asserting her son was “murdered” for supporting law enforcement.
Navy veteran Lee Keltner, 49, died in a Denver hospital on Saturday after being shot in the head while participating in a “Patriot Rally” at the Denver Civic Center. The rally faced off against an “Antifa/BLM Soup Drive” rally nearby.
Police arrested Matthew Robert Dolloff, 30, late Saturday afternoon, and charged him with first-degree murder in Keltner’s death. Dolloff was hired by a local news outlet as a security guard through the private security company Pinkerton. Dolloff and Keltner got into an altercation at the event, and Keltner attempted to pepper spray Dolloff when the security guard allegedly shot Keltner in the head.
“My son Lee was at the patriot rally today in Denver,” Keltner’s mother, Carol, post in a Tea Party Facebook group, according to
