Video helps ID suspect in shooting

DENVER — Denver police said Monday they had identified a man wanted in connection with a shooting at a weekend marijuana rally that wounded two people, but officers declined to identify the suspect because an arrest had not yet been made.

The man was shown on a video posted on YouTube and is believed to have been an accomplice to the primary shooter at the Saturday event, said police spokesman Sonny Jackson. Police had urged the public to watch the video, which showed a man walking away from the shooting scene as sirens wail in the background.

‘‘We’ve identified the man,’’ Jackson said. ‘‘We’re not releasing his name because he’s not in custody yet.’’

As was the case with the Boston Marathon bombings, Denver police asked those at the rally to share anything they may have seen, photographed, or recorded.

Still unknown is the identity of the primary shooter. Police are looking for a man who was wearing a blue hat, gray sweatshirt, and black pants at the rally.

It wasn’t clear if the shooting would affect future plans by organizers of the annual “4/20” rally, which traditionally attracts tens of thousands of pot smokers to downtown Denver. It was the first rally since Colorado legalized marijuana last fall.
