DENVER (CBS4) – An anti-gang activist is due in court Monday afternoon.

Terrance Roberts is accused of shooting a man during a peace rally in North Park Hill last month.

He claims it was self defense and the victim, Hassan Jones, had a knife.

Roberts ran an anti-gang initiative.

Roberts shared comments with CBS4 and in reference to gang members he said his “only crime to them … was finding them jobs and being a voice for saying let’s not continue the gang culture.”

“My supporters need to know that leading up to this event, even after the threats and altercations, I was on the peace courts that Prodigal Son owned setting up for a peace rally,” he wrote.

That’s when he says the victim accosted him.
