2408


20-year-old Todd Jamal Dye was fatally shot on April 24, 2015 by Officer Ron Arlint after pulling a gun.

The officer responded to a trespassing complaint from the owners of a vacant property at the Almar Trailer Park in the 1500 block of E. Main Street Colorado Springs at around 9:18 a.m.

The video reveals the officer talking to the owners in the beginning, then deciding to search the trailer to see if anyone was inside.

Officer Arlint found Dye inside.

He told the suspect to get on the ground, and for a moment, he complied. Then as the officer began to use his radio to update dispatch, Dye jumped up and attempted to run. The officer told him to stop, and he turned around and pointed a gun at the officer. That was when the officer shot him.

Officer Arlint called an ambulance and the man was taken to Mt. San Rafael Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
