Following is a statement from Alec Oughton, Fire Chief for Aurora Fire Rescue, regarding today’s verdict in the first of three trials related to the Elijah McClain case:

“Until all of the trials related to the death of Elijah McClain are ruled, Aurore Fire Rescue owes it to all of the defendants to withhold our comments about individual case outcomes to ensure that we do not compromise their right to a fair trial. Additionally, the court has precluded the city and our department from commenting on the facts and circumstances of the incident while these proceedings are pending. We respect the rule of law and the outcomes of the cases.

“What we will share at this time is our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone impacted by this event. The stress they have suffered over the past four years as they seek healing and closure is unimaginable. We also want Aurora residents to know that we remain focused on our responsibilities to provide exceptional service in protecting the community, loved ones and property during emergency situations.”
