When Denver police arrived on scene, they found the guard with multiple stab wounds. There was a Black male lying in the street at 20th just west of Curtis Street. He was handcuffed. Paramedics then attended to him.

The man suffered several gunshot wounds to his back and left leg.

Police say their investigation revealed that the guard was conducting a routine foot patrol around the bus terminal when he saw the suspect, later identified as Adell Phillips, 30, standing behind a concrete stanchion connected to the bus terminal parking garage. The man kept looking around the corner at the guard and his partner.

That’s when the security guard approached the stanchion and Phillips struck the guard on the side of his neck before he started to stab him. That’s when the guard pulled out his weapon and fired at Phillips.

Both the guard and the suspect were rushed to Denver Health with serious injuries. Phillips remains in custody on investigation of attempted first-degree murder.

    What is with the capitalization of the adjective ‘black’?
    Probably some new way the ‘woke’ lamestream media pay homage in this Age of Idiocy.

      I wondered the same. What was the race of the guard? Did that not work for your story?

  2. Common Sense says:

    According to BLM, Phillips is totally innocent. This model citizen was simply walking down the street when big bad guard shot him in the back just because he is black! Where are the marches, where is the rioting, where is the property destruction? And where are the ambulance chasing attorneys? This case is hours old and no lawsuit has been filed against the guard.
