Colorado police officers dragged by stolen vehicle suspect

Andrew Brown Jr. shooting was ‘tragic, but justified,’ DA says

DA Andrew Womble said no officers will be criminally charged.

Three Colorado police officers in a Denver suburb were dragged by a suspect who was then shot and killed Tuesday while responding to reports of a stolen vehicle, authorities said. 

The Englewood cops approached the car just before 10:30 a.m. at an apartment complex in the 1400 block of East Girard Place.

A female passenger in the car was taken into police custody at the scene.
