There was a fatal shooting in Denver, Colorado on Saturday.


"One person has died and two people are in custody after a shooting during dueling protests Saturday in downtown Denver, according to police and media reports. A man participating in what was billed as a 'Patriot Rally' sprayed mace at another man and that man shot him with a handgun," The Denver Post reported Saturday.

Two guns were reportedly recovered at the scene.

"Police officials say it’s up to the district attorney to determine whether the male who allegedly shot the gun was doing so in self-defense," CBS Denver noted. "One group of protesters was calling for police reform while the other group of protesters was showing support for police. The rally held by the Patriot Muster group was ending."
