Colorado Crimes: Family of man at center of officer-involved shooting wants answers

Representatives of the Aurora Police Department still haven't identified the man seriously injured during an officer-involved shooting this past weekend -- although they have confirmed that he didn't shoot himself in the incident, as initially implied. Yesterday, however, the family of 18-year-old Darius Murray came forward to identify him as the person in question, and to excoriate the Aurora cops for what they call "inconsistencies" in the reports to date. At this point, Murray is reportedly in serious condition at the University of Colorado Hospital. Expect more from both sides of what looks to be a contentious story in the coming days.
