‘Good Samaritan’ in Olde Town Arvada shooting was killed by police, source says

The Denver Post: The “good Samaritan” credited by police with saving lives by intervening with an active shooter in Olde Town Arvada this week was shot and killed by an Arvada police officer, a source familiar with the investigation confirmed Thursday.

None of the agencies involved in the investigation of Monday’s fatal shooting of Johnny Hurley have said who killed the 40-year-old, who intervened after a gunman shot and killed Arvada police Officer Gordon Beesley in what authorities have described as an ambush.

The Arvada mayor, an Arvada public safety spokeswoman and a spokesman for the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office all directed questions about Hurley’s death to the First Judicial District Attorney’s Office.
