ARVADA, Colo. (KDVR) – In one handwritten manifesto, Ronald Troyke, Olde Town shooter who previously killed Officer Gordon Beesley shot dead by the good Samaritan Johnny Hurley, wrote that he dedicated what he did to the Aurora Police Department.
Troyke wrote that the department was most troubled in Colorado and addressed the involvement of APD in Elijah McClain’s death. He writes that the killing of Arvada police officers is linked to the APD because the department is so focused on it.
The letter speaks to Troyke’s desire and reason for killing police officers and anger towards law enforcement.
Troyke had a previous encounter with Arvada police on June 7 when he was asked to leave the Arvada Public Library and provide officers with false information.
Troyke’s electronic deviceshas disturbing content
Detectives said they found several videos of Troyke “driving/walking around” with a shotgun and rifle on his Samsung tablet.
He also has “an extensive YouTube history that consists almost exclusively of police/anti-police misconduct/1NS Auditor video modified. ”
An investigator reported that Troyke apparently watched those types of videos for hours every day.
The last video on the device was loaded hours before the deadly shooting. According to the police report, the video was titled “Springfield policewoman running over and killing black man after he was shot – Earning Hate.”
Troyke’s internet search history also shows that a last search on his device questioned whether someone could be criminally charged for swearing at or debunking a police officer. .
