DISTURBING VIDEO: Disabled Veteran Was Shot in the Head By Roadblocking Protestor, Now on Life Support
A disabled veteran who was shot in the head by a left-wing protestor in Colorado is fighting for his life. Danny Pruitt, 49, is currently on life support at UCHealth Memorial Hospital in Colorado Springs.
Pruitt was shot in an altercation with George Floyd protestors in Amalosa, Colorado last Thursday. Pruitt was confronted by a group of George Floyd protestors who were blocking a road in the city’s downtown. While proceeding down the road, a protestors retrieved a gun and shot into the passenger car window of Pruitt’s vehicle. Pruitt drove off, and his black truck was located by police about a mile down the road, with the driver being debilitated from a gunshot wound.
Police are saying there is no indication that Pruitt plowed through the crowd of protestors. Alamosa police Captain Joey Spangler confirmed that “I can say we have no evidence to show that he was driving into or through the protestors.”
The Amalosa Police Department arrested a suspect in the shooting that night, 27-year old James Marshall. In a remarkable twist, the accused has been identified as a defense attorney in the community. Marshall is being charged with several serious felonies for his role in the alleged shooting, including second degree attempted murder, first degree assault, reckless endangerment, and menacing.
The shooting was caught on video, and surveillance camera footage shows it to be a heinous, calculated act of violence.
One of Pruitt’s relatives has created a GoFundMe to pay for his medical expenses. She describes Danny as the loving single father a daughter and a disabled military veteran. The latest update on his medical condition suggests that surgeons have drained some of the fluid from his head from the shooting, but that Pruitt remains in critical condition and on life support.
The GoFundMe has raised more than $120,000, and Pruitt’s niece is hoping to recieve $150,000 to pay for her uncle’s medical expenses. The man, who appears to be a highly honorable and loved American father, has been largely ignored by the mainstream media, with no national news agencies reporting the brutal and potentially politically charged shooting.
