Denver mosque leaders feared RTD shooting suspect had radicalized, reported him to Homeland Security

On Christmas Eve, the leaders of a Denver mosque sent an e-mail to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to express concerns about a man who was becoming radicalized.

The e-mail, which was obtained by The Denver Post, describes a white man from Texas who had attended a luncheon for recent converts and an open house where he rebuked a presenter for being soft and told others that it is OK to fight to establish the rule of Islam in the United States.

The e-mail appears to be about Joshua Andrew Cummings, the 37-year-old accused of shooting and killing a private security guard working for Denver’s Regional Transportation District.

Cummings has not been formally charged but is being held without bond in Denver’s Downtown Detention Center. He is scheduled to appear Friday in Denver District Court.
