One shot dead in Denver after participants in “Patriot Rally” clash with counter-demonstrators

A Pinkerton security guard has been accused of fatally shooting a man after dueling protesters clashed.

Participants in a “Patriot Rally” clashed with counter-demonstrators from a “BLM-Antifa Soup Drive” event according to the Denver Post.

An attendee arguing with a BLM member appears to mace a security guard who had been hired by NBC affiliate 9NEWS to protect its reporters. The security guard then shot the rally attendee who sprayed him.

According to the Denver Police, 2 suspects are now in custody in relation to the shooting and the shooting is being investigated as a homocide.
