Swap Meet back on after murder but Mongols MC and Iron Order banned

Denver, CO  (December 26, 2017) BTN— Two years after a member of the Mongols MC was murdered at a swap meet, the event is being allowed to return to the National Western Stock Show complex.

One person was killed and several others wounded  in a confrontation between a member of the Mongols MC and the Iron Order in February 2016. Derrick Duran of the Iron Order, was not charged after he claimed he fired in self defense at a member of  the Mongols MC.

“One Mongol punched me four times. I said stop it ‘Stop it leave me alone.’ Boom. I discharged a weapon,” he said in an interview with police from that day. A Mongol was carried downstairs and Duran said he went to police. “I said, ‘I shot back in self defense here’s my weapons,'” he said.

The event was banned the following year.

Now its website announces it is back — but under certain conditions from the City of Denver and the Stock Show. Biker Trash Network

The Mongols MC and the Iron Order are banned, and no knives, guns, drugs or outside alcohol will be allowed.

Confederation of Clubs’ attorney, Wade Eldridge, said their members, which include the Mongols, would not attend due to city demands.

“The Confederation of Clubs would sign a document telling the city we would pay them if there was anything bad that happened. if someone got shot, beat up or perhaps if anyone slipped on a banana peel.”

So the Confederation is offering a different event the same day at Harley Davidson in Parker to benefit veterans.

The Colorado Confederation of Clubs event will support the Vets for Vets of Colorado   

At the Stock show event January 27-28th there will be metal detectors and extra security to prevent a return of violence. The Biker Trash Network posted both event links after the video below.

DENVER, CO - January 30 - At least one person was killed after a shooting/stabbing melee Saturday afternoon at the National Western complex. Denver Health tweeted shortly before 2 p.m. that nine people had been transported to area hospitals. The fight broke out between the Iron Order and the Mongols MC.

At a 3:30 p.m. news briefing, the hospital said 7 patients were brought in after the shooting. One died, three are critical and three are stable.

Bob Cook witnessed the shooting. His booth for Quarterchaps, a leather goods company was located across from where the shooting happened. He heard two shots fired and saw people dive under tables. He didn't hear any arguments before the shooting and doesn't know what may have prompted it.

He said there were puddles of blood on the floor, but minutes later, the scene returned to normal. "Everyone is so desensitized," he said as he pointed to dried blood on the floor that people were walking over.

Britney Shaw was working at a jewelry stand when she saw a group of about 50 men brawling on the stairs, which are now covered in blood and cordoned off.

Denver Health Medical Center put its campus on a precautionary lockdown to ensure patient and visitor safety. There have been no threats made to the hospital. One officer on duty there has a semi-automatic rifle slung over his shoulder. ER doctor Kevin McVaney said the hospital was able to handle the emergency. "We are very prepared for this number of trauma patients." All seven arrived via ambulance and no other injured parties are expected.

Denver Health encouraged people who don't have a specific need to come to the hospital to avoid the campus.

The 38th Annual Colorado Motorcycle Expo is being held this weekend at National Western complex.

Raquel Lopez, Denver police spokeswoman, said the disturbance happened at 12:48 p.m. Multiple shots were fired and at least one person was stabbed. No arrests have been made.

Several men were escorted to an awaiting RTD bus at the National Western Stock Show Complex.

One witness, who asked to remain anonymous out of fear of retaliation, said the feud was started by rival biker clubs. Police filled the parking lot. People who left the show and crossed the police tape are not being allowed back into the building.
