Denver, Colorado β€” On September 15, 2020, at approximately 10:34 p.m., the Denver Combined Communications Center received a call on the non-emergency line from a female caller at the apartment complex at 2499 S. Colorado Blvd. This caller told the operator that her brother, brother-in-law and grandfather were just in contact with a man with a handgun which fell out of his pants. This man appeared drunk and was trying to hug the men. They were concerned that the male with the handgun was going to hurt himself because he seemed distressed. He was not someone whom they recognized. The dispatcher issued an alert for officers to respond to the call of a person with a gun. Corporal Robert Krelle and Officer Dennis Liss responded to the call. Corporal Anthony Gutierrez-McKain also responded to the call. The information from the 911 caller was related to these police officers, so they were aware of the report of a gun being involved. When officers arrived at the apartment complex, an unknown bystander standing on his balcony told the officers that the man they were looking for was to the northeast of complex.

Corporal Gutierrez-McKain observed the male fitting the description given by the dispatcher. The male was staggering and appeared to be intoxicated. This person was later determined to be 22-year-old Mac McPherson. The officers then observed McPherson cross S. Colorado Blvd. from the east side of the street to the west side of the street in the 2400 Blic of S. Colorado Blvd. The officers re-entered their vehicles and exited the parking lot of the complex and responded, travelling approximately 700 feet to the north. There they attempted to contact McPherson. McPherson was on the sidewalk in front of a small strip mall. Since he was believed to be armed, officers initiated a “high risk” contact utilizing the police emergency lights. Officer Liss parked their vehicle in the southbound lanes of S. Colorado Blvd., facing north-west. When Corporal Krelle and Officer Liss exited their vehicle they were positioned to the east of McPherson. Corporal Gutierrez-McKain parked his vehicle in the southbound lanes of S. Colorado Blvd facing north.

When Corporal Gutierrez-McKain exited his vehicle he was positioned to the south of McPherson. When he was contacted, McPherson turned back toward Corporal Krelle and Officer Liss. McPherson placed his hands in the air slightly above shoulder level with his elbows at his side. After McPherson acknowledged that he had a handgun, he reached in his right front pocket and pulled out a black handgun. Corporal Krelle, Officer Liss and Corporal Gutierrez-MelCain fired their duty weapons at McPherson. Both Corporal Krelle and Officer Liss shot six times; Corporal Gutierrez-McKain shot one time. McPherson was struck by several rounds. As he fell his body twisted and several more rounds struck McPherson. Corporal Krelle radioed that there was an officer-involved shooting which started supervisors to the scene. Officers immediately began life saving measures including placing a tourniquet on McPherson’s leg. They continued with first aid until a Denver Health Medical Center (DHMC) ambulance arrived on scene. Paramedics transported McPherson to DHMC but he was pronounced deceased at 11:22 p.m.
