Protesters demand justice in death of African-American man

Protesters march in the US state of Colorado calling for justice in the death of unarmed African American Elijah McClain in police custody last year. 

The protesters demanded that police officers involved in the McClain’s killing be arrested. Earlier this week, the Colorado governor ordered a special probe into his death after millions of people signed an online petition urging an investigation. The 23-year-old black man died three days after an officer used a chokehold on him and medical responders injected him with a powerful sedative in August 2019. US police brutality has come under close scrutiny since the killing of African American George Floyd in Minneapolis in May. His death has sparked anti-racism protests across the world.
