FAMILY OF ELIJAH MCCAIN FILES WRONGFUL DEATH SUIT AGAINST AURORA, COLORADO

According to a confirmed report from People Magazine, the 23-year-old African-American man who was killed by Aurora, Colorado police during an attempted arrest, has filed suit against the city.

The federal lawsuit also names several Aurora police officers, a paramedic, and a medical director, accuses them of excessive force, failure to provide medical care and negligence. It also says the Aurora Police Department has “persistently” brutalized Black and Brown people in that community.

Sheneen McClain and Lawayne Mosley, Elijah’s parents, are “seeking both accountability for the profound loss of a beautiful soul, and to ensure that Elijah did not die in vain by sending a resounding message that racism and brutality have no place in American law enforcement,” the lawsuit says.
