(TeaParty.org Exclusive) – The plot thickens in the case against a Denver man who shot and killed a Trump supporter amid clashes between Antifa/BLM groups and pro-police Trump supporters on Saturday.
Initially, local media reported that the man who was arrested on suspected homicide following the altercation and subsequent shooting was the bodyguard to a local reporter.
However, The Gateway Pundit has found that the suspect does not appear to have been registered as a security guard in the state.
So, who was this guy, and why was he working as a bodyguard for a local reporter?
Here’s the backstory, from TGP:
A local news producer and their bodyguard were taken into custody for the fatal shooting of a Trump supporter during dueling rallies in Denver on Saturday.
All initial reports had indicated that it was a conflict between Antifa and conservatives, but the Denver Police later issued a statement saying that the shooter did not have any ties to the militant leftists.
Kyle Clark of 9 News, a local Denver station, tweeted on Saturday evening that one of their employees and a contractor have been arrested for the shooting, which is being investigated as a homicide.
“A 9NEWS employee and a 9NEWS contractor have been taken into custody. 9NEWS has not been in contact with either and does not know where either currently is,” Clark tweeted.

Update: Further investigation has determined the suspect is a private security guard with no affiliation with Antifa. Additional information will be released as it becomes available.

However, the affiliation of this shooter was called into question.
Regarding affiliation. I lightened the arrest video. Do Trump supporters wear masks? pic.twitter.com/9feHdOuo87

So the Denver @9NEWS security shooter, Matthew Robert Dolloff, now arrested for murder has quite the Facebook post history. From [email protected] the Police (FTP), to sharing Occupy Denver/ Democrats, to his [email protected] Trump.

TGP’s Paul Blum searched the shooter’s name in the list of registered security guards in Denver.
“Dolloff,” the shooter’s name, does not appear to be mentioned.
So, who was this guy? Do the police know for sure that he was a security guard, or did they just take that for granted?
