The Denver gunman who shot and killed five people during his killing spree has been identified as 47-year-old Lyndon McLeod.
McLeod was a former tattoo parlor owner who killed five people after he opened fire at multiple locations throughout the city of Denver and the suburb of Lakewood on Monday night.
Following his killing spree, during which he gunned down three fellow tattoo artists, McLeod was shot dead by the police. While the authorities believe the gunman might have gone after tattoo shop owners, the motive for the shootings remain unclear.
It has since also come to light that McLeod ran the Flat Black Ink parlor until 2017 when he decided to quit his business and move to the mountains where he lived in a transformed shipping container.
Denver Police Chief also confirmed that the 47-year-old man was investigated on two occasions in 2020 and 2021. Though the nature of concerns remains undisclosed, McLeod did not face any charges as a result of the two instances.
Speaking out about the Denver shooter was also Gabriel Thorn who told KDVR that the man “disappeared off the face of the earth” after he had sold them his former house.
“There were numerous hidden gun safes in the walls of this house,” Thorn claimed.
“He just disappeared off the face of the earth when we bought the house. My wife and I joke that he’s changed his name and moved out of the country.”
The shooting remains under investigation. Our thoughts remain with the victims and their families during these difficult times.
