Denver rally shooting - Right-wing protester ‘shot dead by TV crew guard after macing him’.

A PRO-cop protester was allegedly shot dead by a TV crew security guard after macing him during clashes between Antifa and right-wing militia.

Horrific images show the moment Lee Keltner, believed to be part of a right-wing "Patriot Muster" rally, was fatally shot on Saturday outside the Denver Art Museum in Colorado.

The protester maced the security guard, who then pulled out his handgun and shot him dead in the museum's courtyard, the Denver Post reported.

Keltner was reportedly shot at point-blank range and was taken to the hospital, where he died an hour later, Denver Police Investigations Division Chief Joe Montoya said.

The Denver Police Department identified Matthew Dolloff as the suspected shooter, and disclosed on Sunday afternoon that he is being "held for investigation of first degree murder."

The department noted that the investigation is active and ongoing.

Detectives determined that a "verbal altercation" happened near the museum just before the shooting, Montoya said.

Video shows a man confronting a group of what appears to be protesters, when a man in a baseball hat steps in between them and puts his arms out to separate them, the man says: "Don't f***ing touch me. Touch me one more time; you're gonna get it."

Then speaking to another man, he says: "F***king mace me. Walk up to me and f***ing mace me. Mace me motherf***er."

The man in the baseball cap steps in between them once again as the man continues to yell but is told "don't f***ing touch me, man."

As the man continues to yell at the group what sounds like a gunshot is heard.

DPD confirmed that the security guard wasn't affiliated with the counter-protesting Black Lives Matter-Antifa group.
