Report: Suspected Colorado School Shooter’s Dad Was Deported Twice

by Neetu Chandak


The father of a Colorado school shooting suspect was deported twice and had a history of domestic violence, according to records obtained by Daily Mail.

Jose Evis Quintana, father of shooting suspect Maya “Alec” McKinney, is a Mexican national and was deported on April 21, 2017 and on Dec. 9, 2010, Daily Mail reported.

McKinney, along with Devon Erickson, are suspected shooters at STEM School Highlands Ranch, which left one dead and eight students with injuries Tuesday.

Douglas County Sheriff’s Department also arrested Quintana in 2008 for kidnapping, menacing with a weapon, evading police in a car and driving without a valid license, Daily Mail reported. He was released on bail, however.

His criminal history includes a domestic violence offense against hairstylist Morgan Lynn McKinney and “menacing with a weapon” in 2009, according to Daily Mail. He was sentenced to 15 months of prison when all the charges, besides the charge against Morgan McKinney, were dropped.

Quintana and McKinney were in a long-term relationship when they had Alec McKinney in 2003, Daily Mail reported. The couple had two more children before getting married in 2009, the same year Morgan McKinney gained permanent custody over the kids.

Maya McKinney was born as a female, but prefers to be called by her male name Alec.

Douglas County Sheriff’s Department and Immigration and Customs Enforcement did not immediately respond to The Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.
