UPDATE: This story has developed considerably. Please read about the incident here.
A Trump supporter attending a Patriot Rally in Denver has been shot and killed after a confrontation broke out between conservative rally goers and Black Lives Matter/Antifa street criminals. The anarchists allegedly opened up with violence, throwing cans of soup at Trump supporters before one within their ranks opened fire.
Update: A witness statement has been added below.
According to the Denver Post, the Trump supporter deployed mace against the shooter just moments before shots were fired. We’ve compiled as much information as we could find about the incident and included videos below.
A man participating in what was billed as a “Patriot Rally” that also included a presence of self-described BLM-Antifa protesters, sprayed mace at another man and that man shot him with a handgun. Ambulances responded to the scene. Police said Saturday afternoon they were working on a homicide investigation.
The “Patriot Rally” in Civic Center was organized by John Tiegen, an El Paso County resident with a large social media following, who tweeted earlier this month that “BLM, Antifa and related Marxist associations are assaulting everything we love and cherish about this country.” The counterprotest has been billed by organizers on Facebook as a “BLM-Antifa Soup Drive.”
The shooting comes just less than a month before the upcoming presidential election and just over a month since anarchist Michael Reinoehl assassinated Trump supporter Aaron “Jay” Danielson on the streets of Portland.
Denver Police have opened a homicide investigation.
