DENVER (AP) - A man who was shot and paralyzed by one of Denver’s leading anti-gang activists is suspected in the death of a 2-year-old girl.

The Denver Post reports (https://goo.gl/aUWlra ) 24-year-old Hasan Isaiah Jones is being held for the August death of his girlfriend’s daughter, Ny’Ari Hines. Aurora police say the girl died of blunt-force injuries to her stomach that caused her bowels to bleed.

In 2013, Jones was shot multiple times by anti-gang activist Terrance Roberts in Denver’s Park Hill neighborhood. Roberts, who is awaiting trial in the case, says he was acting in self-defense.

Separately, Jones was acquitted Thursday of an attempted murder charge stemming from a May 2014 drive-by shooting in Denver.

Booking records do not indicate if Jones has hired an attorney for his latest legal troubles.
