Denver ‘Patriot Rally’ shooting suspect not a licensed security guard

The Colorado man accused of gunning down a right-wing demonstrator in Denver while guarding a local TV news crew was not licensed to work as a security guard, according to a news report.

Matthew Dolloff, 30, who was identified as a Pinkerton detective agency employee hired by 9News-TV after the Saturday afternoon shooting, does not have a required city license to work security in the mile-high city, KCNC-TV reported Sunday.

“We searched our records and there is no record for an active licensed security guard now or ever for an individual named Matthew Doloff or Dolloff,” Eric Escudero, a spokesman for the Denver Department of Excise and Licenses, told KCNC reporter Andrea Flores.

“If he was operating as a security guard, he was in violation of the law,” Escudero added.

Matthew Dolloff shot and killed Lee Keltner. Dolloff was not a licensed security guard.

Keltner, a military veteran, was seen in photos and on video arguing with several Black Lives Matter protesters who confronted the rally participants shortly after 3:30 p.m. in the courtyard of the Denver Art Museum, police said.

Keltner was shot and killed after spraying what appears to be pepper spray at Dolloff, who dropped the weapon and got on his knees to surrender when police moved in following the shooting.

Dolloff’s family declined to comment when contacted by The Post on Sunday.

The Pinkerton agency did not respond to a request for comment.

He worked for Pinkerton.

This is the moment a Colorado hat-maker was shot dead by a Pinkerton security guard amid dueling protests in Denver.

The shocking sequence of photos captured at the Saturday demonstrations show the two men approach each other, and the victim — identified in a Facebook post by his mother as Lee Keltner — raising his left hand to the other’s face.

The suspect has been identified as Matthew Dolloff, a Pinkerton private security guard, then drew a handgun, while Keltner raised a canister of Mace and let loose a yellow mist of the choking spray, the photos show.

The frames then capture the shot of Keltner crumpling to the sidewalk, as the Mace slowly dissipates in the air.

It is on video and photo. Matthew Dolloff is charged with capital murder.

The article says he's charged with homicide. Not capital murder.
