Arvada Homicide Investigation Case AR20011326

On July 11, 2020, at 10:50 pm, Arvada Police responded to reports of a shooting in the 5900 block of Lamar St. Officers arrived to a chaotic scene and discovered one man shot to death, two men with multiple gunshot wounds, and a fourth man who suffered a traumatic brain injury.

The investigation determined there was an altercation between the Mongols (MMC) OMG and the Hells Angels (HAMC) OMG, resulting in the death of HAMC member William “Kelly” Henderson. The suspects also are alleged to have assaulted and attempted to murder two other HAMC members. A community member who tried to help the injured was severely beaten with a helmet and run over with a motorcycle; that victim has life-long injuries. Two additional community members were riding motorcycles in the area and were violently run off the road by members of the MMC and both of these victims also sustained serious injuries.

The Arvada Police Department completed thousands of hours of investigation into this complex case involving two rival motorcycle clubs. The workload was shared with Municipal, State and Federal partners. APD has worked in conjunction with the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), The Regional Anti-Violence Enforcement Network (RAVEN), Aurora, Colorado Police Department, and the First Judicial District Attorney’s Office.

As of January 26th, 2022, Law Enforcement Agencies from Florida to California arrested ten suspects in four states.

Local field divisions of the ATF provided support and local Law Enforcement Agencies from the following jurisdictions;

Florida: Tampa Police Department and Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Department.

Colorado: Thornton Police, R.A.V.E.N. Task Force.

Utah: Davis County Sheriff’s Department.

California: Riverside and Orange County Sheriff's Departments, California. California Highway Patrol.

Arvada PD would like to thank all of these very professional organizations and highlight the fact that ten high-profile arrests were made for violent crime warrants without incident.

From the Denver Office of the ATF, Special Agent in Charge David S. Booth:

“These violent defendants have been removed from the street because of the perseverance of dedicated law enforcement men and women from Arvada PD and multiple other agencies. We will not stand for violence and this case illustrates the time and effort we will put in to remove these destructive individuals from our communities.”

The hard work of the APD and its partner agencies has culminated in the issuance of arrest warrants for ten suspects related to 33 criminal counts.
