Shootings at 2 Christian institutions appear related

UPDATE 1; 10 December 2007; 5:30 p.m. A 24 year-old man from the suburban Denver, Colorado area is reportedly responsible for both shooting sprees that occurred at two Christian institutions yesterday. The man has been identified as Matthew MURRAY who was last known to reside with his parents and a younger brother in an upscale home at 10929 East Berry Place in Englewood, Colorado.

According to a law enforcement source, the man professed to “hate all Christians,” and reportedly left a note or letter that he intended to murder as many Christians as possible. According to this law enforcement source, MURRAY “was also in possession of explosive or incendiary devices” during the attacks. The Northeast Intelligence Network is continuing our investigation of these related shootings.

10 December 2007: In the wake of the shooting spree at the Westroads Mall [1] in Omaha, security at malls, stadiums, churches and other locations where people gather was the topic in the first hour of Coast to Coast AM with George Noory [2] last Wednesday. Doug Hagmann, founder and director of the Northeast Intelligence Network, was the guest for that segment which can be downloaded from the Coast to Coast AM web site for Streamlink subscribers. [3]

The prophetic relevance of that show segment was painfully illustrated yesterday as four people lay dead as a result of two shootings at two Christian institutions in Colorado - separated only by 12 hours and 70 miles. According to one Colorado police official interviewed by the Northeast Intelligence Network, the shooting sprees appear to be related - they both appear to be the work of the same gunman, stated the police official.

The murderous events began to unfold about 12:30 a.m. Sunday, when an unidentified man armed with a handgun opened fire at the Youth With a Mission office during a Christmas party, after ostensibly being denied a request to spend the night there. Youth With a Mission is a Christian missionary training center located in Arvada, Colorado, 15 miles west of Denver. According to witness reports, the gunman appeared to purposely engage one of the staff members at the center in an argument that grew heated when he was asked to leave. At some point, the 20-year-old white male, who was wearing a dark jacket and skull cap, drew a handgun and shot a man and woman to death, wounding two others. The gunman then fled on foot, successfully eluding police teams with search dogs. It is reported that his identity was known to some of those in attendance.

About 12 hours later, two people were killed at the New Life Church in Colorado Springs, Colorado, a large Christian church located about 70 miles of Arvada when a gunman armed with a rifle and a handgun opened fire in the parking lot of the church. The gunman, whose description closely matched that of the gunman at the Youth With a Mission center, then entered the main foyer area of the church that was filled with 7,000 worshipers. As the gunman began to make his way through the foyer, he was shot and killed by a member of the church’s armed security staff before police arrived. During the investigation at this location, police found several smoke generating grenades lying near the shooter. Neither the identity nor the motives of the dead gunman have been released by police, and the investigation into both events is continuing.

The Northeast Intelligence Network is following this case closely.
