On August 24, 2019, 23-year-old Elijah Jovan McClain walked to the store to buy iced tea. He was wearing a ski mask because he was anemic and would sometimes get cold.
On his way home, Elijah was stopped by Aurora Police Department officers who claim to have received a 911 call reporting a suspicious person wearing a ski mask. Footage released from the scene shows Elijah pleading with officers to let him go. Three officers, Nathan Woodyard, Jason Rosenblatt and Randy Roedema claim Elijah resisted arrest and proceeded to tackle him to the ground. Elijah was 56 and weighed only 140 pounds.
