Mathew Dolloff, a security guard accused of shooting and killing a man in downtown Denver during dueling rallies last month, has been released on bail, according to the Denver Sheriff’s Department.
Dolloff posted a bond of $500,000. He left the Downtown Detention Center Tuesday afternoon, a spokeswoman for the department said.
Dolloff, 30, has been charged with second-degree murder for shooting and killing Lee Keltner at dueling protests in October. The shooting was captured in videos and photos. Dolloff pulled a gun on Keltner after Keltner hit Dolloff, according to an affidavit.
Dolloff was working as a security guard for a private security company called Pinkerton. 9News hired the firm to protect its reporters who were covering the protests. The staff did not know Dolloff had a gun, according to a statement from the TV station. Dolloff does not have a license to work as a security guard in the city of Denver, according to the city.
