DENVER, Co.  — Police identified a 30-year-old man as the suspect in a fatal shooting that took place in downtown Denver during dueling protests.

Police said Sunday that Matthew Dolloff, a private security guard working for local television station KUSA TV, was being held for investigation of first degree murder in connection with Saturday's shooting.

The shooting took place shortly before 3:50 p.m. in downtown Denver after a man participating in what was billed a "Patriot Rally" sprayed Mace at another man.

That man then shot the other individual with a handgun, according to a Denver Post journalist.

The man who was shot later died at a hospital. KUSA TV says it had contracted Dolloff to accompany staff at protests.
