    That is so horrible ... what senseless, stupid reason would someone have to fight and fire a gun at a concert with all those people attending .. and resulted in that female LE being killed!!!

    I hope they find the person(s) soon and we hear more news soon about the officer ... she probably had a family.

    Arrest

    A 21-year-old man has been jailed in the shooting death of Denver police Officer Celena Hollis in a killing that brought community members out to show support for police.

    Hollis, the mother of a 12-year-old daughter, was killed at a jazz concert in City Park.

    Rollin Oliver was being held Monday on suspicion of first-degree murder in the death of Hollis, who was shot in the head after attempting to break up a fight involving two groups of people. The trouble occurred as the concert was ending at about 8 p.m. Sunday.

    Thank goodness an arrest has made by LE! Surely, this 21-yr old shooter will receive the full punishment allowed by law for killing a police officer, regardless of whether it was intentional!! A 13-yr old girl is left without a mother.

    RIP Officer Hollis.

    Hollis was in uniform, patrolling the concert with other off-duty officers working as security for the event.

    Hollis, a patrol officer in District 2, moved to Denver in 2005 from Detroit, where she also served on the police.

    She was easy to get along with and always had a smile on her face," said Lt. Ron Thomas, an organization board member. Roberts said Hollis was a common sight patrolling the streets of Park Hill.

    "She was very respectful to the kids — she related to them because of her experience being from Detroit," he said.
