Two paramedics from Aurora Fire Rescue are among five people indicted in the death of Elijah McClain in 2019. Lieutenant Peter Cichuniec, medic Jeremy Cooper, and three police officers were charged with one count of manslaughter, one count of criminally negligent homicide, and various lesser charges of assault.
Police officers stopped McClain on August 24, 2019 as he was returning from a convenience store. Officers claim he resisted and they were forced to restrain him. Medics were requested and they later injected him with ketamine. McClain went into cardiac arrest and passed away at the hospital on August 30, 2019. He was 23-years-old.
