Overnight on Sept. 16, Kroener had just finished his shift in Lower Downtown when he heard a fight and shots fired in the area.

Kroener saw two men he believed were possibly related to the shooting and pointed one of them out to responding officers, and detained the other man until officers could take him into custody.

Less than two weeks later on Sept. 28, Denver police officers responded to the same area on a report of a shooting and located an individual suffering from a gunshot wound.

Kroener, again working as a security guard there, confronted a possible suspect in that shooting near the intersection of 14th Street and Market Street. A fight ensued between Kroener and the suspect. During this altercation, the suspect shot and killed Kroener.

Former Blackwater guard convicted of instigating mass shooting in Iraq.
A jury found Nick Slatten guilty of murder for his role in a massacre that killed 14 unarmed Iraqi civilians and wounded 17 others. It was the third time Slatten had stood trial on the charge. Jurors deliberated for four days before returning their verdict, which came at the close of a six-week trial in U.S. District Court in Washington – and just three months after a previous trial on the same charge ended in a hung jury. Slatten disputed prosecutors’ arguments that he fired the opening shot that touched off the rampage, which became one of the flashpoints in the war between Iraq and a U.S.-led coalition.
