The family of a 19-year-old man who was shot and killed by a Colorado police officer earlier this month is calling for an independent investigation into the shooting.

The family of a 19-year-old man who was shot and killed by a Colorado police officer earlier this month is calling for an independent investigation into the shooting.

It is unclear from the video whether Bailey reached for a firearm or whether he was shot before or after he fell.

Bailey later died at an area hospital. The shooting prompted peaceful protests in the community.

Darold Kilmer, one of the family's attorneys, said"transparency is crucial."

"I don’t want to make this about 'Black Lives Matter' or anything because all of our lives matter," he said."I know everyone says that my son was killed by a white cop, and he’s a black man in the community. Yes, those are facts. But that’s not what this is about. This is what’s right is right and what’s wrong is wrong, and what’s wrong is that my son was shot in the back by law enforcement."

On Thursday of last week, a news release from the sheriff's office stated that it"operates as an independent agency to provide a fair and impartial examination of the facts as it relates to Peace Officer Involved Incidents."

The two officers involved in the shooting have been placed on routine administrative leave, according to the sheriff's office. They have not been identified.
