Four arrested in Denver: Police feared a "Vegas Style" Mass Shooting at MLB All-Star Game
An astute hotel employee may have thwarted what Denver police feared was a planned Las Vegas style mass shooting at tonight's Major League Baseball (MLB) All-Star game.
Based on a tip provided by a maid, Denver police executed a search warrant on an eighth floor room with a balcony at the Maven Hotel. The room overlooks the downtown area not far from Coors field where the All-Star game will be played.
Just as weekend celebrations were getting underway in Denver, police removed 16 long guns, body armor and more than 1,000 rounds of ammunition following a search of the room on Friday evening.
One of the four people who have been arrested in connection with the incident recently posted a Facebook message referencing his recent divorce and proclaiming he was going to “go out in a big way."
