Middle-class gangbangers on the rise.
Police in Denver have launched a homicide investigation after one person was shot dead at the site of the duelling right-wing ‘Patriot Muster’ rally and a Black Lives Matter protest. Two suspects have been apprehended.
Footage has emerged on social media purporting to show the moment a shooter fired his gun at the victim. Right before the single shot rang out, a burst of orange substance, apparently mace, can be seen rising from the scene.
Police, that were deployed en masse to prevent skirmishes between the rival groups, could be seen surrounding the alleged shooter, telling him to drop the gun. One suspect, who drops on his knees, puts the weapon on the ground and hands behind his back, did not show any resistance as he is taken into custody by the officers.
The video also shows police trying to resuscitate the victim, who lies motionless on the ground.
Another video shows a shouting match between an apparent Black Lives Matter supporter, donning a “Black Guns Matter” shirt and a man with a pepper spray in his hand. The BLM activist can be seen goading the other man on to spray him with mace. “Mace me, motherf**ker, f**cking mace me,” he says repeatedly. As the back-and-forth between the two gets heated, a third man attempts to break out the brawl, prompting the apparent BLM supporter to tell him off. “Don’t f**cking touch me,” the BLM activist says, before shoving him in the back. “Don’t touch me, old man. Don’t f**cking touch me old man,” he repeats.
A couple of seconds later a sound of pepper spray being discharged and a shot fired can be heard.
It’s unclear if any of those involved in the row captured in the video were also involved in the shooting incident.
While police have yet to release the identities of the suspects and that of the deceased victim, a man can be heard crying “white supremacist” and “right in the f**cking dome” in a video that captured the immediate aftermath of the shooting.
