1 min read


A 37-year-old Black man was unarmed and holding a phone when an Aurora police officer shot and killed him in late May, according to body-worn camera footage released Thursday by the Aurora Police Department.

Kilyn Lewis was raising his hands in the air when Aurora police SWAT Officer Michael Dieck shot him outside an apartment complex at 384 S. Ironton St. on May 23, the video shows.

Lewis died from a single gunshot wound on May 25.

Lewis was suspected in a May 5 attempted first-degree murder in Denver, and both Denver and Aurora officers were working to arrest him on May 23, Aurora police have said. Officers surveilled Lewis over the course of two days, interim Chief Heather Morris said in a video briefing about the shooting.
