Elijah McClain's 2019 death after police encounter prompts calls for new investigation

Pressure is mounting for a new investigation into the death of a man after an encounter with police in Colorado last August. According to his family, 23-year-old Elijah McClain was out buying iced tea when he was stopped by police after a 911 call claimed McClain was wearing a ski mask, "acting weird," and waving his arms around. He was pronounced brain dead three days after police put him in a chokehold and a medic injected him with ketamine.
