Video footage of the incident was shared widely online. It showed how the private security guard physically assaulted the Trump supporter, prompting the man to use what appeared to be pepper spray. The security guard responded by fatally shooting the man.
Division Chief Joe Montoya provided the press with some more information about the attack and confirmed that it remains an active investigation.

The department also claimed that their further investigation determined the suspect was a private security guard that has “no affiliation with Antifa,” but evidence suggests the security guard was heavily invested in Antifa and far-left politics.
Blaze TV reporter Elijah Schaffer published evidence showing that the Denver shooter was not only a registered Democrat, but a follower of far-left politicians on social media, had a history of publishing anti-Trump rhetoric and was part of the Occupy protests.

Schaffer even showed how the man followed an Antifa-related account on Twitter.
Let’s wait and see how the Democrats and Joe Biden try and twist this into a “far-right extremism” issue.
