Colorado Springs, CO — Angry protests have erupted in Colorado Springs after two police officers were captured on surveillance footage chasing down 19-year-old De’Von Bailey, shooting him in the back, killing him. The video of the August 3 shooting was just released this week sparking protests and anger from the community who says the shooting was unnecessary and nothing short of murder.
According to police, they were dispatched to the area around 6:45 p.m. on Saturday over reports of a robbery. Police claim they detained two men, Bailey and another man, when Bailey allegedly reached for a weapon and police shot him. But the video shows no such weapon, nor does it show Bailey reaching for anything.
