A year after Denver-Lakewood killing spree, police review of prior warnings about shooter still not public

The Denver Post: Denver public safety officials have yet to complete an investigation into how they handled prior warnings about a man who “may commit a terrorist attack” a year after that man killed five people on a vengeful shooting spree across Denver and Lakewood.

Denver police officials launched an investigation after the Dec. 27, 2021, killings to review how they handled tips they received about the gunman, Lyndon McLeod, in 2020 and 2021.

Both Denver police and the FBI were warned about McLeod’s potential for violence before he killed Alicia Cardenas, Alyssa Gunn Maldonado, Michael Swinyard, Danny Scofield and Sarah Steck in four separate locations in Denver and Lakewood, including two tattoo parlors, a hotel and a private residence.
