DA King announces decision in Olde Town officer-involved shooting

First Judicial District Attorney Alexis King held a press conference Monday announcing that no criminal charges will be filed in the officer-involved shooting that took place June 21 in Olde Town Arvada.

The announcement comes following a 3-month investigation by the First Judicial District Critical Incident Response Team (CIRT) – a multi-jurisdictional team of investigators from law enforcement agencies and the District Attorney’s office in the First Judicial District (Gilpin/Jefferson). No officers from the agency involved in the shooting performed critical duties related to the investigation.

On Sept. 9, the results of the CIRT investigation were turned over to the District Attorney’s office to determine if the incident met the statutory definition and standards for criminal charges as defined by Colorado law.

DA Alexis King and a team of investigators and prosecutors conducted a thorough review of all the evidence and witness statements collected by the CIRT before determining that the incident didn’t meet the standards for criminal charges to be filed. A letter outlining the decision was released Monday and is available to the public at the link below:
