Officer Crystal McCoy, an Aurora police spokeswoman, said Chief Metz plans to address the officer's involvement in the June shooting at a press conference planned Thursday afternoon. "We are providing assistance through our victim advocates to help the family of the deceased resident through this very hard time", Metz said.

While the family mourns the loss of their loved one, Denver Police and the DA's office are investigating.
