The photo showed Officer Jaron Jones with his arm around Dittrich's neck in what appears to be a choke hold while Marrero stood nearby smiling. Jones resigned after the investigation into the photo became public. Rosenblatt was also fired after responding to the photo, saying, “HaHa.”
Elijah McClain was wearing a mask on the night of August 24, 2019, when someone called 911 to report that he seemed suspicious. Aurora police officers approached McClain, leading to a struggle. McClain was handcuffed and officers requested medical assistance. Aurora Fire Rescue later injected him with ketamine in an attempt to sedate him, police said. He suffered cardiac arrest during the ambulance ride to a nearby hospital. He later died.
