A May 13 blog quoted Aurora Police Chief Daniel J. Oates denying that officers involved in the May 9 shooting of Darius Murray had done anything improper, despite claims to the contrary by the Murray family. Now, Adams County District Attorney Don Quick officially concurs with Oates. He's released a letter that states: "It is clear that Mr. Murray fired at least three rounds in the direction of Officer Collins and seconds later Officer Pearson fired his service weapon in the direction of Mr. Murray. These facts are established through both Officers' reports of the incident and corroborated through independent eyewitnesses at the scene."
