Who is Gustav Denecamp? (Salt Lake nightclub shooting Suspect ) Wiki – Gustav Denecamp Bio
Staff at Echo said the man that brought the gun into the bar, Gustav Denecamp, had been kicked out of the club earlier in the night for getting into a fight. Watt said he may have gotten back in as other groups were leaving.
Allan said people screamed, dispersed and tried to escape. Watts said he gathered his employees in the back.
“When someone said he was still in the club with the gun,” Watts said. “And it was a good minute and a half to point it at people, almost two minutes after he was shot. That’s when a few of the bar staff went and got their firearms.”
At this point, he said Denecamp was close to the entrance of the club with two people trying to talk to him and get weapons from him. That’s when Watts said he told his colleague to hit the needle.
Watts said he then yelled at Denecamp to draw his attention.
“He turned around to actually point the gun at me and that’s when the hero really put one very clean shot, it was actually in his shoulder.”
Watts doesn’t want to give the name of his co-worker he calls “the hero.” He said they are worried that some may have relations to a gang.
He said after he was shot, Denecamp stumbled out front, still holding the gun. Staff and patrons got the gun away from him and provided medical attention. Police arrived and continued CPR, but Denecamp was pronounced dead at the scene.
