4 arrested at Maven, police fear ‘Las Vegas-style shooting’ during Denver All-Star Game – Denver Post
DENVER – Police feared a “Las Vegas-style shooting” during the All-Star Game in Denver after receiving a tip from a maid working at a hotel not far from Coors Field, who discovered more than a dozen guns and more than 1,000 rounds of ammunition inside a room Friday night. .
Several well-informed law enforcement sources associated with the investigation told Liz Gilardi and Denver 7’s chief investigative reporter Tony Kovaleski that they intercepted the weapons inside an eighth-floor room of the Maven Hotel as the All-Star Game festivities began.
Sources said the police removed 16 long guns, a protective vest and more than 1,000 rounds of bullets from the balcony room overlooking the downtown area. Sources said they fear the number of guns, ammunition, vantage point and large crowds could lead to a Las Vegas-style shooting.
Based on the information provided by the hotel employee, the police executed a search warrant and found pistols, ammunition, a protective vest and a man inside the room on the eighth floor.
One of the suspects arrested Friday night had posted a message on Facebook referring to a recent divorce and saying it would come out in a big way, according to multiple law enforcement sources.
