Bodycam Footage of De’Von Bailey Shooting in Colorado Springs



** (Disclaimer: This video content is intended for educational and informational purposes only) **
The Colorado Springs Police Department has released body camera footage from the August 3 shooting that killed 19-year-old De’Von Bailey as he tries to avoid arrest. Police in Colorado Springs have released body cam videos that show police officers firing on and killing 19-year-old De’Von Bailey as he tries to avoid arrest. Friends and family have called for an independent investigation into whether or not the Aug. 3 shooting was justified. Police say Bailey was a robbery suspect and that he reached for a weapon before he was shot. The videos from two officers at the scene of the fatal shooting show Bailey and another male standing up and being questioned by officers.

“We have a report of two people, similar descriptions, possibly having a gun … so don’t reach for your waists. We’re gonna just check and make sure you don’t have a weapon,” say officers, according to a transcription police displayed next to the video. Bailey suddenly bolts, and the video shows the officer firing at him as he’s sprinting away. His hands are clearly in the area of his waist as he’s running. Officers then run over to where he falls on the ground in the video and attempt to render aid. The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office has taken over the case and the district attorney’s office will decide whether criminal charges are warranted. Bailey’s family says the two agencies have conflicts that could impact the investigation. A lawyer for Bailey’s family was set to discuss the case on Thursday afternoon in a news conference.

  1. Another completely justified shooting… another outraged group of victims claiming racism and abuse of power… yet the facts are as follows: two matched the description, dude ran from police, dude reached for his waist, and reports currently state there was a firearm recovered at the scene… so… yet again – justified shooting

  2. He ran because he doesn't want to be tied with the guy he's with. He reached for his waist cuz his pants was falling. Lmao okay I'll stop

  3. Wait, it's a BLACK kid?!?!?! What the hell!!!?? I'm hearing all about this white supremacy but see no white supremacists getting shot.

  4. This young man’s parents are now trying to open a separate investigation and they have also filed a lawsuit. Ironically, now they wanna get involved. Where were they when their 19 year old son (who lived under their roof) was running around committing crimes with a deadly weapon? It’s funny how people can raise humans to be shit birds in society with no regard for their fellow citizens but then they wanna complain when the consequences of their upbringing surfaces.

  5. I love these shootings but the cops need to do it right you cant shoot people in the back wait untill they turn to you Let your adrenaline flow a bit

  6. Good job officers. I guess the families of lowlife scum bags like these expect police officers to give chase and while running assess whether he is actually reaching for a gun, and if it is a gun and the cops get shot at they need to further dodge the bullets Matrix bullet speed style, then finally they get to shoot back at these Neanderthals. Not sure if even then they would call it justified.

  7. This is a video of pure, crisp, professional policing. They did their jobs, and yes, I do feel sorry for them at the end of the day, for the stress that they have to endure as a result of the insanity that they have to deal with, but it's their jobs, and they can take a great deal of comfort from that. Blue lives not only matter, but they matter more than most, and on a daily basis. Thank You, Officer, for your sacrifice! And you do sacrifice every day, Sir, and you know every measure of it, down to the smallest. Thank you, Sir!

  8. You mean, a police handgun, is not a death ray? He can just drop to the ground, on to his side, and still speak to the officer, even after being mortally wounded? So, he's still perfectly capable of shooting the cop, even though he's already dead?
    Why do we have cops? Why is it that there are people still willing to do this job, in this degenerate society?
