Denver: Muslim carrying “Islamic writings” shoots, kills transit security officer, “motive unknown”

55

A Muslim suspected of shooting and killing an armed RTD transit security officer had Islamic writings in his possession when he was arrested, according to sources with knowledge of the investigation.

The Islamic element will insure this gets no coverage.

Denver Police Chief Robert White said local authorities had no prior contact with [the killer] and that his only criminal history was a misdemeanor charge in another state.

“We’re not 100 percent sure what motivated this particular individual to shoot the victim,” White said.

White said investigators were trying to determine if the security officer was shot because of his dark blue uniform, which resembles the one worn by DPD.

Barb Archer, the commander of the Denver Police Department’s Major Crimes Division, called the attack “completely unprovoked.”

Victim: Scott Von Lanken

Sources describe suspect in shooting death of RTD officer as ‘radical Muslim’

KVDR, February 1, 2017 (thanks to Craig Silverman)

DENVER — The man suspected of shooting and killing a uniformed RTD contract security officer in Lower Downtown late Tuesday night has been described as a “radical Muslim,” law enforcement sources told FOX31 Denver.

The suspect was identified as 37-year-old Joshua Cummings.

Two sources told FOX31 Denver that investigators found jihadist materials in Cummings’ backpack and those materials are now being investigated.

Scott Von Lanken, 56, was shot and killed, the Denver Office of the Medical Examiner confirmed.

The shooting happened about 11 p.m. at 16th and Wynkoop streets on Union Station Plaza, one block from Union Station, police said.

“This is an incredibly sad day for us, and on behalf of the entire RTD family I extend my prayers and express my sincere condolences to the officer’s family, friends and loved ones,” RTD general manager and CEO Dave Genova said in a statement.

Police said at a news conference Wednesday morning that two women were asking the armed security officer about light rail routes when a man approached from behind, pointed a gun at the officer’s neck and fired.

Cummings was found hiding in the 1600 block of 14th Street about 20 minutes later and was arrested without incident, police said. A gun was also recovered.

The shooting is being investigated as a homicide and police are looking into whether it had to do with the victim wearing a uniform.

“It’s really disheartening when anyone loses their life, but especially when we have someone out there providing safety to the community at large,” police chief Robert White said.

Police said Cummings lives in the area and police have not had contact with him. He had an out-of-state misdemeanor arrest more than five years ago. White said the motivation for the shooting is not known.

Lanken was employed by Allied Universal, which provides security services under contract for RTD.

“Our entire team is deeply saddened by this loss,” RTD assistant general manager of safety and security Mike Meader said. “RTD and Allied Universal have been in contact with the officer’s family and will continue to offer our support during this sad time.”

Wynkoop was closed between 15th and 17th streets on Wednesday morning as police investigated the shooting. It reopened about 5:50 a.m.

Officers later set up a makeshift memorial at the scene with flowers and signs for the man. One sign said, “Prayers from the downtown motorcycle unit.”

RTD has 250 uniformed Allied Barton security officers who patrol 24 hours a day, and about 265 contracted extra-duty police officers from Lakewood, Aurora and Denver. There are also eight internal transit police officers.

A memorial fund to help support Scott Van Lanken’s wife and two children has been established through the Rocky Mountain Law Enforcement Credit Union. It’s under Scott Van Lanken’s name. You can get the credit union’s contact information on its website or by calling 303-458-6660.

 

Pamela Geller's shocking new book, "FATWA: HUNTED IN AMERICA" is now available on Amazon. It's Geller's tell all, her story - and it's every story - it's what happens when you stand for freedom today. Buy it. Now. Here.

  • Reader

    It’s only just begun!
    Americans have got to wake up.
    Abu Darda, a companion of Mohammad stated the motivation clearly for what are to become more than just indiscriminate acts:
    “We grin at some persons with the teeth, while hating them in our hearts!”
    It is the hatred that is being fostered now more and more in the hearts of children and when they mature and are unleashed, it is going to be hell on earth.
    My concern is the knife attacks that are sure to follow as they unlike shootings are not immediately recognizable as a dangerous event. People just fall down, often silently without even an outcry.There is no gunfire to alarm people, and the attacker often can continue on his rampage without it being understood exactly what is taking place. Those most threatening to us are training persons how to do knife attacks in a manner which allows them to move through a crowd relatively unnoticed.
    People cannot grasp why someone is incapacitated and lying on the ground while the attacker goes on his way. There are actually training videos demonstrating how to perform these sudden acts and escaping notice.
    America is under judgement and we best wake up!
    I don’t see national repentance occurring which is truly what we are being called to, but those who have ears to hear will hear and respond accordingly.
    The sword of the Lord is in the land and the cup is to be drunk to the bitterness of the dregs. Our insolence and arrogance practically cries out for the judgement from God.
    “The wicked shall be turned into hell and all nations that forget God!”
    In our infancy we were a nation adhering to the general principals of Christianity. For the most part, we have cast God behind our backs and are welcoming the Christ of the desert we have been warned not to go after.
    That spirit is the deceiving spirit of Islam and its father is both a liar from the beginning and a murderer.

    • Janet

      They say in ten to twenty years that Islam will be the second largest religion in the US. Those knife attacks are alarming to say the least. I heard about one where the women was pregnant. Even children aren’t off limits. Really scary!

      • moose

        Janet: And what’s just as scary is that if it wasn’t for a scant few columnists and bloggers we wouldnt hear much about any of these attacks…….Thank God for those people who keep us informed,,,

  • Craig

    Cowardice and political correctness is killing the United States. Remember, the socialist democrats hate the United States and want their communist America. They will continue to kill Americans and call for killing conservatives and supporting the muslim savages.
    Buy a gun, learn how to use it and carry it always.

    • Janet

      I can’t get a gun. My hand is so screwed up I wouldn’t be able to pull the trigger. Hell I can barely spray a can of hairspray. I wish I could! Any suggestions Craig?

      • Craig

        Tazer, stun gun (just a small button to push and at 1 million volts, they will take the curl out). Pepper spray, etc. All are effective and relatively cheap. They even have a pepper spray that is shaped like a small gun, Kimber Pepper Blaster.
        Hope that helps. If things get tight, I can always travel…have to get some “Paladin” cards…..cool.

        • Janet

          Thanks Craig! That’s a good idea. I live alone right now so that would make me feel better.
          I live in a safe town but you never know. Don’t know how much longer I’ll be here though because I’m really thinking about moving back east. We’ll see. Take care!

      • Wasp spray (in the face) with a nozzle that shoots a long distance is a good deterrent .

        • Drew the Infidel

          Bear spray is very effective. It is a favorite of convenience store clerks in “bear country” like the Pacific Northwest, shoots at an effective distance, and carries a specific warning about not using it on another human being.

      • Taser and a pair of steel toed boots works wonders…

      • David C. Telliho

        I expect a good mechanic could design a trigger set up similar to the “winter trigger” for the M1 Garand. If you can hold a can, you could shoot the Garand. I`d suggest a double action revolver so there would be no need to operate a slide,safety,or magazines to be loaded. Trigger pull weight can be modified to suit your needs.

        • Janet

          Hey thank you!

          • David C. Telliho

            Acquire the best quality firearm you can afford. The cheaper ones are prone to break down. My top two preferences are Smith & Wesson or Ruger. Many times a good used one comes on market. If I can help, just holler. And you`re very welcome.

    • Drew the Infidel

      Those who live by the sword get shot by those of us who don’t.

    • Dave Quilty

      Here again I am note seeing this attack on this officer and on our culture covered elsewhere. Were it the other way around it would be 24/7 coverage and OB would try and make a come back.

  • Mark Steiner

    The problem with Denver is you have a demoncratic mayor, a police chief who receives demoncratic marching orders from the demon at city hall, and a county (Denver) who has voted for 1st District demoncratic Congresswomen for over 40 years. You have the Denver (Demon) Post who had aided and abetted crimes since Alferd Packer in the 1890’s …They don’t give a tinker’s hoot about anyone one but themselves. Period.

    It is up to Denver talk show personalities, spearheaded by Peter Boyles, Dan Caplis and Craig Silverman to raise he outrage to such a level that even God can hear.

  • Mahou Shoujo

    9-11 was insufficient to alert many Americans to the danger of islam, the occasional murder will not either, it will take something rather nasty to motivate the Average American or Canadian into action.

    • Janet

      I know! How soon they forget.

    • AlgorithmicAnalyst

      Very good point. Nothing seems to awaken certain people.

    • moose

      It certainly didnt help that we had a muzzie lover in the WH for 8 years !! Thank GOD he and his gorilla are gone! Thank GOD we have a Patriot as Prez NOW…

      • Dorrie

        I agree, but there are still people in government who supported Obama, and they’re continuing to damage America.

  • Janet

    Do we dare talk about this? Are all the facts in? After all the nasty remarks about Pamela Geller and to us for commenting about that French Canadian mosque shooting I don’t want to get lectured again! Lol

  • AlgorithmicAnalyst

    Need to have full-court press nationwide investigating mosques and such, like in the Bush years.

  • bannedquran20

    You mean, ‘devout’ muslim. With that said, there is no such a critter as a moderate, peaceful, extreme, radical muslim. They are called ‘devout’ muslims neighbor. As for isis, al qaeda, etc, they are the real muslims who follow their quran to the letter. This is the main reason why muslims are killing each other dead.

  • “The motivation for the shooting is not know”. What a stupid statement!

  • santashandler

    From now on, for every Islamic attack committed on American soil, we deport 10 Trump protestors/haters/liberals to one of the seven banned countries of their choosing.

    • moose

      Sounds about RIGHT to ME !!

  • sovereigntyofone

    ” Motive unknown ? ”
    Really? How about the simple fact that he was a ” Muslim ” and their murder cult teaches kill all infidels?
    Just my 2 cents worth.

    • Honkingoose.

      That 2 cents worth is worth a dollar at least!

  • Pantalones

    Was he black or what..I bet he was…

    • Janet

      No he’s white. A convert I think!

  • Drew the Infidel

    The blame for this and other such incidents in which the police have been attacked can be laid squarely at the feet of the Obhammud regime. Simply by shooting off his mouth with irresponsible remarks, he and his cronies initiated a “war on cops”. It all started way back when he said the Hartford cops had “acted stupidly” in arresting an out of control university professor for a public disturbance and the resultant insipid “beer summit” afterward. Who can forget his ridiculous and inflammatory crack about “if I had a son” in the justifiable shooting of Trayvon Martin?

    • moose

      Obummer and his administration was the most anti AMERICAN group of SOB’s EVER to sit in the WH. I pray that we never have such a band of bums in power again !! Everyone wanted the first BLACK president…too bad they never really LOOKED at his background…BEFORE they voted for him….As a black man he could have done SO MUCH for Black Americans but all he did was move to divide us as a people…….Good Riddance to him and his tribe of American Haters…

      • Drew the Infidel

        Agreed. There are two cop killers hiding out in Cuba whose return to the US to face justice was not part of Obhammud’s “normalizing” of relations. There is Joanne Chesimard who killed a NJ state trooper and some guy named Hill who killed a state cop in NM.

  • Peter Joffe

    No Known motive?? Read the Koran and you will find the motive as we all know what the motive is. Deport all Muslims as we do not know who will commit terrorism and who will not. Tar then all with the same brush or face a greater onslaught. Political correctness is a contributing factor as liberals take Islam as ‘non violent’. How wrong can we be? Build that wall and build it fast complete with machine gun towers.

    • Speak the Truth

      The leftists are hoping that Americans will NOT read the Koran.

  • cerberus

    This motive business is a real 21st century mystery. Could IBM build a super computer to solve the problem perhaps? It’s definitely beyond mere mortals to comprehend. Especially journos and police.

  • freepetta

    What do you mean motive unknown? We all know the motive, they depise us!

  • KimWilde

    Typical of the coward they all are. While the officer was busy helping someone he is shot from behind.

  • Annie

    They don’t know his motive? Haven’t Imams throughout the world called
    for individual attacks on infidels – with stabbings and car rammings and
    shootings? The guy was carrying Islamic writing with him, for pig’s sake.

  • aebe

    Motive ? We don’t need no stinking motive , we’re islamites .
    Folks need to understand that they have a moral obligation to defend themselves and others .

    How utterly strong they despise and hate us, only the stupid leftists that are daily

    common sense, so ban all muzzies from the US shut down all mosques for ever. Don’t

    forget when the twin towers collapsed 1 billion of their kind were dancing and chanting in

    the streets worldwide. They are our deadliest enemies since the inception. Their only

    goal is the erasement of the western and jewish civilizations!

  • Peter Joffe

    You do not need to read the entire Koran as here are the versus that yu need to know.
     Slay the unbelievers wherever you find them(2:191)

     Make war on the infidels living in your neighbourhood (9:123)

     When opportunity arises, kill the infidels wherever you catch them (9:5)

     Kill the Jews and the Christians if they do not convert to Islam or refuse to pay Jizya tax (9:29)

     Any religion other than Islam is not acceptable (3:85)

     The Jews and the Christians are perverts; fight them (9:30)

     Maim and crucify the infidels if they criticize Islam. (5:33)

     The infidels are unclean; do not let them into a mosque (9:28)

     Punish the unbelievers with garments of fire, hooked iron rods, boiling water; melt their skin and bellies (22:19)

     Do not hanker for peace with the infidels; behead them when you catch them (47:4)

     The unbelievers are stupid; urge the Muslims to fight them (8:65)

     Muslims must not take the infidels as friends (3:28)

     Terrorize and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Qur’an (8:12)

     Muslims must muster all weapons to terrorize the infidels (8:60)

    The Qur’an certainly proclaims that when the time is appropriate, Muslims must use force to convert the unbelievers to Islam. For the non-Muslims, the alternative to this is to pay the humiliating protection money (Jizya tax) or be killed (by beheading, of course). A militarily dominant Islam, without doubt, precludes the peaceful co-existence with the unbelievers if the Muslims have to abide strictly by the unalterable stipulations of the Qur’an.

    This is why we see very few “moderate” Muslims coming out and speaking against the violence. There is so much overwhelming evidence stacked against them not able to be “moderate” because of the fundamental belief’s of Islam.

  • Keith1941

    Not sure “why”? The Soviet Union once said they would destroy America from within. The future is here!

  • Cetansapa

    Why was he taken into custody without incident instead of dead at the scene? Administrative political cowardice is literally killing our officers yet the perpetrators know even if they are caught they will just get three hots and a cot with free medical care, and court appointed lawyers to file endless appeals for leniency and parole. Whether this killer truly is a muslim or not shouldn’t matter. He should be tried and if found guilty should be promptly executed rather being allowed to sit on death row for the next fifteen or twenty years filing appeals. He took the life of a family man with a wife and two children in cold blood and must not be shown any mercy. Just kill him. I know it won’t bring the slain officer back to life but it will certainly keep this scumbag from ever killing or injuring again.

    Maybe that “devout” muslim thought he saw jesus and followed his training.

  • Mahou Shoujo

    “Completely unprovoked” ? No, that is not the case, as an unbeliever he was provoking muslims to deal with his affront and offence to islam by living. “I shall cast terror into the hearts of the infidels. Strike off their heads, strike off the very tips of their fingers.” Quran 8:12

  • IzlamIsTyranny

    I wonder if law enforcement is being pressured to lie about muslum crimes from higher ups.

  • Jimmy Kubler

    Americans are so pathetic, the know nothing about Islam and Quran. They are like parrots, repeating nonsense they hear in racial news channels like Fox News. Just calling a lunatic person like Joshua Cummings as radical Muslim is too far from truth. This guy is a result of your corrupted society. So don’t try to call him a Muslim. Islam and Quran prohibit killing innocent people. So don’t keep playing this broken disk over and over.
