Dueling demonstrations ended with a gunshot and a man down.
Two protests in Civic Center Park — the Patriot Muster and a BLM/Antifa counter-protest set up as a soup drive —- were both winding down on Saturday, October 10, when a shot rang out and a man went down. He was pronounced dead at Denver Health; the Denver Police Department has already made an arrest. It was a startling end to an afternoon that had been largely peaceful.
