Pictures show TV guard taken into custody after protester shot dead

Denver: A private security guard working for a TV station is in custody after a person died from a shooting that took place during duelling protests in downtown Denver.

The shooting took place shortly before 3.50pm in Civic Centre Park after a man participating in what was billed a “Patriot Rally” sprayed mace at another man, the Denver Post reported. That man then shot the other individual with a handgun near the courtyard outside the Denver Art Museum, according to a Denver Post journalist who witnessed the incident.

The man who was shot was taken to a nearby hospital, where he died an hour later, the KUSA TV station said.

The KUSA TV station said on its website that it had contracted the private security guard who was arrested in connection with the shooting. “It has been the practice of 9NEWS for a number of months to hire private security to accompany staff at protests,” the station said.
