Five days before the massacre...

The Denver Morning Post
November 16, 1927


State law enforcement men stationed at the Columbine mine near Lafayette last night prepared to meet any emergency which may arise as a result of expected picketing there this morning.

A machine gun and several hundred rounds of ammunition were taken to that area late last night by one of the state’s newly commissioned officers Roy Connor. Connor went to police station and obtained a Denver police officer who went to the Golden rifle range and helped him load the gun and ammunition.

Governor Adams, when advised of the action last night, said he had not been informed of any such move. A number of additional deputies and state officers are expected to re-enforce the peace squad which has been on duty at the Columbine.
