There are no criminal charges against two unidentified Colorado correctional officers who shot and killed an armed man in Denver in October, the Denver district attorney said.

On October 20, 2021, Aaron Lang, 38, was shot by the officers, part of the Colorado Department of Corrections Fugitive Apprehension Unit, on the 1000 block of South Parker Road. Lang was taken to Denver Health Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead. The officers issued a warrant for the arrest of Lang, who was wanted for an alleged violation of parole.

After an investigation, Denver District Attorney Beth McCann released a “decision letter” on the police shooting on Wednesday, and “concluded that no criminal charges are warranted,” a press release said.

On the day of the shooting, Lang tried to evade the officers and his arrest, the release said. When confronted by the officers, Lang refused to put down his weapon and raised it instead.
