Witness says Good Samaritan shot the gunman in Olde Town Arvada

By: Adi Guajardo
ARVADA, Colo. — On Tuesday, the Arvada Police Department chief identified John Hurley as the Good Samaritan who was killed during Monday’s shooting in Olde Town.

The chief called Hurley a “true hero.” Witnesses told Denver7 that Hurley confronted the gunman.

Hurley was 40 years old and lived in Golden. A friend described him as an outspoken activist.

Hurley, veteran Arvada Police Officer Gordon Beesely and the gunman, Ronald Troyke, were killed in the shooting on Monday afternoon in Olde Town Square.

Bill Troyanos was working at the Arvada Army Navy Surplus store on Monday afternoon when Hurley walked into the business. He said Hurley was inside for just a few minutes when they heard gunshots outside and saw the gunman in the plaza. Troyanos said Hurley swiftly pulled his gun from his holster and jumped into action.

    Wonder if the POS Melton had time to “gauge” how bad he had f’ed up before he bled out? There was another POS named Melton in our life back yonder that we spent decades trying to track down. One reason why older brother joined the AF. We found out a few years ago that he died a slow, long, lingering painful death and hopefully is still being tormented by the Barbed Co#k of Satan as his worthless soul burns in Hell.

    Rest easy Officer Beesley and Mr. Hurley. “…no greater Love…” March to the sound of the guns. A follow up video in the linky indicates that Mr. Hurley was shot and killed by another responding officer who musta not taken the time to separate the sheep from the goats. DAMN!

    Cute little Kitty Kitty Bay Rhetta. FTA seems as if it may be nearly worthless at much more than knife fighting range. Also has jamming and non-eject issues. It is, however, made of metal and wood (as God and the Most Saintly JMB, Howitzer Be His Name, intended weapons to be) so there is that.

  2. we had a jimmy melton in a div. from oklahoma who used to put salt in his beer at the tradewinds in norfolk nob, loved to fight and had a run in with the shore patrol. when the okie 3 left for san diego in 1967, i heard he got transferred over to b div.

    Sounds like Mr Melton had hisself a meltdown.
    Wonder what the Gage of weaponry was that shot & killed him?

    “shot by a person at the scene.”
    I hope that person un-named in the article stays that way, for his own continued good health and safety.
    (clerk to shooting customer): “Thanks. You did us a solid. Now take these two pizzas, free, & scram outta here before the cops arrive. I didn’t never see ya. Now I gotta go & erase the security video. Go! Get! Scram! Bye! Oh, and again, thanks.”

    A “trifecta” of DRTs today…..but sadly, two we did NOT want dead.
    RIP, Mr Hurley, and Officer Beesley. As Gun Bunny said, “ greater love..”. May your respective families find peace.

    You idiots left out the part where Hurley was killed by a cop because they thought he was the shooter. So Hurley was killed because he decided to be a hero.

    • AW1Ed says:

      “Officials have not released information on who fatally shot Hurley. They also haven’t confirmed who shot the gunman.”

      Got a link for us idiots, or do you like being a loud mouthed asshole?
