DENVER — The Colorado shooting suspect has yet to be charged in the murder of a gay man who was shot and killed at a Denver gay bar in 2017.
According to the criminal complaint from the case, Andrew David Long used his own credit card to get a copy of the victim’s credit card bill, which he found “to be the result of unauthorized access or use by Andrew David Long.”
Long was then using a “sophisticated computer hacking tool” to discover the data on which Long’s order was placed.
Prosecutors say Long used his access to the victim’s credit card after he learned about the victim’s sexual orientation.
Long also used this access to hack into the victim’s iPhone data.
The victim’s credit card was used to purchase two “adult-themed” sexual devices, which prosecutors say were shipped to Long.
Long’s hacking access was further extended after he was able to find the victim’s “most sensitive” medical data, prosecutors say.
Long was using the victim’s credit card and the information was later obtained by his hacking team to purchase “adult-themed sexual devices,” prosecutors say.

His hacking team also used his hacking access to obtain information on the victim’s other phone.
Long’s hacking access was further extended after he obtained information about the victim’s sex-related data by hacking his email.
Long was able to use this information to obtain a “sexting app” and send a “sext” to the victim, which in turn alerted Long about the attack, prosecutors say.
Long then purchased a “sexting app” and used it to “sext” the victim.
Long was arrested on May 11,
