The pictures show Lee Keltner arguing with another man, and witnesses thought the men would fight, the affidavit said.
The shooting suspect, 30-year-old Matthew Dolloff, and another man are drawn into the confrontation, and Keltner is holding the can of pepper spray according to an affidavit.
Keltner then turns his attention to Dolloff and the other man, and the pictures show that Keltner and Dolloff “face”
“Mr. (Lee) Keltner hits Mr. (Dolloff) in the side of the head with an open hand. Mr. (Dolloff) is then seen pulling a pistol from his waistband, aiming at Lee Keltner and shooting once and Mr. . suggests. Keltner, when Mr. Keltner is dispensing his (pepper) spray “, it says in the affidavit.
Keltner died in a Denver hospital, the Medical Examiner’s Office said in a statement.
According to the police, Dolloff is being held on an investigation into first degree murder. He appeared in court on Sunday and is being detained in prison, according to prison records.
In a statement released on Sunday, Pinkerton said Dolloff was a third-party contractor.
Dolloff is not a Denver security officer, according to Eric Escudero, a spokesman for the city’s Department of Excise and Licensing.
If Dolloff were to operate without a license, he could face a fine of up to $ 999 or a prison term of up to a year, Escudero said. The company that Dolloff hired could also face administrative action if it did, according to Escudero.
Richards told the Post that Dolloff was defending himself.
“Matt did everything he was supposed to do and what he was trained to do,” Richards told the Post. “Even though he didn’t have the special Denver security license, that didn’t stop Pinkerton from putting Matt in this job, and it doesn’t change the fact that Matt was self-defending.”
CNN reached out to Richards on Tuesday but received no immediate response.
Pinkerton has said it is cooperating with the investigation.
KUSA made a statement Tuesday not knowing that Dolloff was armed.
