A civil rights investigation sparked by Elijah McClain's death has found a pattern of racially biased policing and use of excessive force within the Aurora Police Department, Colorado’s attorney general announced Wednesday.

The investigation into Aurora police and fire departments determined that they violated state and federal law through racially biased policing, use of excessive force, failing to record community interactions and unlawfully administering ketamine.

Announced in August 2020 after multiple police misconduct reports, the investigation was prompted partially by the in-custody death of Elijah McClain, a 23-year-old Black man who was walking home from a store. Earlier this month, five police officers and medics were indicted by a Colorado grand jury in connection with his death.
