Independent monitor: Five Denver police officer-involved shootings still under review

Just before the end of 2012, Nicholas Mitchell, Denver's new independent monitor, released his first report to the public, covering discipline cases at the police and sheriff's departments.

The document from the city's official watchdog, just the second person to hold the position, offers a glimpse into pending investigations of officer-involved shootings.
