After police gunned down a black man running in Colorado, an autopsy report revealed that they 19 year old boy died after being shot three times in the back and one in the elbow.
During the scene, officers with the Colorado Springs Police Department were wearing body cameras and caught all of the incident, which is now available to the public after the family of the victim, De’Von Bailey, demanded its release.
In the video released, officers can be seen talking to Bailey and another black man about an armed robbery that occurred nearby. From there, the men are asked to keep their hands up to be searched and before Bailey can be searched, he runs and reaches near his waist. After yelling “hands up” a total of three times, officers fired shots at Bailey from behind.
Since the release of the footage, there has been a lot of back and forth on whether a gun was seen in the victim’s pants or not. Nonetheless, the autopsy report stated that his wounds “perforated the heart, left lung, diaphragm, and penetrated the spleen, resulting in massive blood loss and his subsequent death,"
Bailey’s family has since asked for an independent special prosecutor to take over the case.
