Jury trial begins for man who livestreamed during King Soopers shooting

The Denver Post: A jury trial opened Tuesday for the bystander who livestreamed the police response to the Boulder King Soopers mass shooting last year.

Prosecutors argued Dean Schiller that day obstructed the police response to the shooting, while defense attorneys countered that his actions, while abrasive and perhaps reckless, did not rise to a criminal offense.

Schiller, 44, was charged with a single misdemeanor count of obstructing police after he happened to be at the Table Mesa King Soopers on March 22, 2021, when a shooter opened fire on customers, employees and police, killing 10 people.
