Denver bar-goer shot by breakdancing FBI agent
Early in the morning on June 2, police officers responded to a call about a shooting at Mile High Spirits, a Denver bar.
Upon arriving at the scene, they discovered that an FBI agent had unintentionally shot someone in the establishment. The agent had done a backflip, causing his gun to fall to the ground. Upon picking it up, the gun went off, hitting a patron in the leg. The bullet hit the victim in the anterior tibial artery, causing serious bleeding. Luckily, the police said the victim did not have life-threatening injuries and had a “good prognosis.”
But there’s a light at the end of the tunnel for the shooting victim, should he choose to return to the establishment: they’ve promised him free drinks for life.

“At Mile High Spirits, we pride ourselves on being a craft distillery with high quality products and an engaging customer experience, in a fun and safe atmosphere. It is shocking that the only shooting to ever occur at our establishment came about as a result of an FBI agent entering our distillery tasting room carrying a loaded firearm without our knowledge, in violation of our rules.

Our security team was able to execute a catastrophic event plan, ensuring, safe exit of all patrons in the establishment after the shooting. We are deeply saddened by the events that occurred and look forward to speaking with representatives of the FBI, so we can come to understand his presence and his need to be armed in our establishment.
