The veteran is believed to have participated in the “Patriot Muster” rally and was shot and killed around 3:30 pm in front of the Denver Art Museum in Colorado.

Carol Keltner, who identified herself as Lee’s mother, shared the update on a Facebook group called Northeast Arkansas Tea Party Group.

“My son Lee was at the patriot rally in Denver today,” he wrote.

“After the rally, a person from the BLM and Antifa side came up to him, said some nasty words and then shot him in the head. He was killed because he backed the police,” he continued.

“Her 24-year-old son was with her,” she added. “I moved to Arkansas because Colorado became too expensive and liberal. The left has gotten out of control.”

Jay Keltner, who identified himself as the victim’s son, also posted on Facebook about his father.

“I can’t believe my dad is gone,” she wrote. “This will never be right #RIP.”

Lee was described in other social media tributes as a “loving husband, father and friend” who would help those in need.

Friend Laura Sanders wrote on Twitter: “Lee was a loving husband, father and friend. She was a minister and helped those in need. He has family and friends who are grieving. ”

She wrote in another message: “Lee u have always had a great sense of humor and you always helped those you could. You were one of the good guys! This world is a sadder place without you my friend! Thank you 4 for all the good memories and fun times! Praying 4 your family! You were an amazing friend, husband and dad! I love you friend! ”

Laura added: “I will miss you forever my dear friend! Your life was taken from you by a coward! You were an amazing husband, father and friend! I will miss our conversations and your laugh and smiling face! Rest in peace Lee! Lots of love.”

Lee keltner was fatally shot at around 3.30pm on Saturday

Keltner ran his Crossfire Hats business in Brighton as a specialist hat maker.

He told the Denver Post in 2015: “Everything I do is personalized. I make one hat at a time, do it well for that customer, and then move on to the next one. ”

Lee, speaking about his business in a 2012 video, said he was “keeping the West alive, hat to hat.”

He said, “The cowboy hat is the history of the West,” adding that in Colorado the cattle style was the most popular.

“I love being an artist,” Lee said. “Creating new and different things because I do all the work myself and I do it one at a time. It’s really special for that client.”

After Keltner is said to have used the mace, the security guard pulled out a pistol and shot him point-blank.

He was rushed to the hospital, where he died an hour later, Denver Police Investigations Division Chief Joe Montoya said.

Police officers are investigating the shooting as a homicide and are reviewing cell phone images taken by various assistants.

Detectives determined that a “verbal altercation” occurred near the museum just before the shooting, Montoya said.

Police initially took two people into custody immediately but released one of them by Saturday evening

Police initially took two people into custody immediately but released one of them by saturday evening.

DPD confirmed that the security guard was not affiliated with the Black Lives Matter-Antifa counter-protest group.

Later, 9NEWS reported that he was a contractor that the news station hired through Pinkerton.

“A 9NEWS employee and a 9NEWS contractor were detained,” the station said, noting that the second of the two people was not related to the shooting.

The producer has since been released from police custody, but the 9NEWS contractor is the suspect detained by DPD.

For several months, 9NEWS has hired private security guards to accompany staff at protests, the news station said.

Video shared on Twitter by prominent pro-Trump conservative Ian Miles Cheong claims to show the verbal altercation that led to the shooting.

A man wearing a “Black Guns Matter” shirt urges a tattooed man wearing a camouflage bucket hat to mash him.

“Mazame, damn it, bro!” the man yells. “Walk up to me and f *** mace me nigg, mace me mother f **** r!”

A woman can be heard in the background asking the man why he is using a racial slur as he continues to yell at the counter-protester.

The man in the bucket hat grabs what appears to be a can of mace as the two continue to exchange obscenities.

“Fuck off and find out!” the man in the Black Guns Matter T-shirt yells before turning his attention to another man holding a baton.

Moments later, the victim is seen falling to the ground behind the arguing men after the hiss of a spray can and a loud bang.

Two weapons were recovered at the scene and the suspect in custody is being held at police headquarters, the DPD said.

A canister of Mace was also recovered at the scene, and detectives are still investigating whether it was used in the attack, the police chief said.

Denver police said later that night the suspect is a private security guard who is not affiliated with Antifa.

Two guns were recovered at the scene, Denver Police Investigations Division Chief Joe Montoya said at a news conference Saturday.

Dozens of people gathered in downtown Denver for a “Patriot Muster” rally for a group of far-right militias and a “BLM-Antifa Soup Campaign” organized by Denver Communists, the Denver-Boulder Socialist Revolution and other groups, according to the event’s Facebook page. .

The security guard still had his pistol in his claws, and while the policemen hounded him with their pistols pointed, he fell to his knees, raised his hands above his head and dropped the weapon.

He was arrested at the scene along with the second person who was later believed to have no connection to the shooting.

Local businesses were warned of the possibility of an escalation of violence early Saturday and told to report seeing protesters wearing helmets, shields or gas masks prior to the demonstrations, KMGH reported.
