DENVER — Over six months after a man was beaten to death at a concert in Denver’s LoDo neighborhood, Denver Police released a sketch of the suspect they were still trying to track down Thursday.

The beating took place at a Kottonmouth Kings concert on April 27, inside Summit Music Hall, which is located at 1902 Blake Street. The victim was involved in a physical altercation at the bar inside the venue before the concert started, according to reports..

Police said there were about 200 people inside the music hall when the fight began.

Police said the victim, Daniel Lovato, was punched, fell and hit his head. He was taken to a nearby hospital and died of his injuries four days later.

Police had still not yet named a suspect as of Thursday, but said that homicide detectives spoke with a cooperating witness who provided enough information to release a sketch of that man.

The suspect is still being described as a 30-year-old Hispanic male, standing between 5-foot-9 and 5-foot-10, with a stocky build and short hair. He has unknown tattoos on both arms, police said, and was wearing a black shirt with red cursive writing and a black hat with a brown bill at the time of the incident.

Lovato’s attacker was reportedly escorted out of the music venue after the assault, but left on foot before police arrived on scene.

If you have any information about the described suspect’s whereabouts or the crime, you’re being urged to contact Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-7867. You can also text information to 274637. A $2,000 reward is being offered for information that leads to an arrest.
