Denver NBC affiliate News9 admitted that the shooter who killed a man near a “Patriot Rally” worked for them as a contract security guard. The incident occurred at the end of the rally as people were leaving the area.
“A private security guard is being held as a suspect in a deadly shooting near the Denver Art Museum,” News9 reported Saturday night. “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 contract private security to accompany staff at protests.”
During the cloud of confusion in the immediate aftermath of the shooting, Denver police officials tweeted they had two people in custody in connection to the shooting incident.
