Colorado authorities quietly ruled in 2021 that Elijah McClain, an unarmed black man who died during a violent arrest in 2019, died because of a ketamine injection by paramedics at the scene. according to newly released documents.

Three Aurora Police Department officers and two paramedics are facing charges related to the arrest, although it is unclear how the case will proceed as the Adams County coroner ruled in July as part of a grand jury investigation that the form of the death remains “undetermined”. Colorado Public Radio reports.

Police found McClain in August 2019 while responding to a call about a suspicious person. McClain, an autistic musician and massage therapist, was not wanted for any crime, but police believed the young man fit the description of the call.

At the time of his arrest, he was wearing a ski mask that his family said was used to keep the anemic 23-year-old from getting chills. McClain was wearing headphones and did not respond to calls from the police, who put him in a cartoid stranglehold.

Just under a year before George Floyd was killed in similar circumstances in Minneapolis, McClain told officers, “I can’t breathe,” the same dying words Floyd used that became a rallying cry during the Black Lives Matter protests of 2020

Paramedics at the scene finally decided that McClain was experiencing “excited delirium”, a highly controversial diagnosis that police often claim to justify the use of force, even though many medical experts doubt its credibility.

Rescuers injected McClain with a large dose of ketamine, a powerful anesthetic, and he lost consciousness while strapped to a stretcher and was pronounced brain dead three days later.

In September, Officers Randy Roedema, Nathan Woodyard and Jason Rosenblatt, and Paramedics Jeremy Cooper and Peter Cichuniec were charged with crimes including manslaughter and manslaughter after Governor Jared Polis appointed a special prosecutor to investigate the death of McClain.

the first responders will file lawsuits in the case in November.
