FBI reviewing Colorado Springs police shooting of black teen De’Von Bailey

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — The FBI says it’s reviewing the fatal police shooting of a black teenager in Colorado Springs to determine whether it involved a civil rights violation.

KOAA-TV reported Wednesday that the FBI is looking into the Aug. 3 shooting of 19-year-old De’Von Bailey.

Bailey was shot in the back and elbow while running from two Colorado Springs officers.

Police body camera footage shows officers talking to Bailey and another man about an armed robbery reported nearby.

Bailey runs as he is about to be searched. An officer can be heard yelling “hands up” three times before firing.

Officers say they found a gun in Bailey’s pants.

The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office investigated and turned over its evidence to the district attorney. Prosecutors haven’t announced the results of their review.
