DENVER — Police are looking into what provoked a gunman to fatally shoot a contracted security guard working for the Denver Regional Transportation District. The incident occurred outside of the Denver Union Station last week.

According to Denver ABC News 7, the security officer was a 56-year-old resident of nearby Loveland, Colo. The gunman, a 37-year-old, walked up to the victim and fatally shot him in his neck. Police arrested him a short time later.

Denver media report that the gunman has an out-of-state criminal history, including an incident in Texas. Local police are now trying to figure out what prompted the man to shoot the guard.

The victim was employed with Allied Universal, a security services company on contract with the rail transit agency.
