Cause of death undetermined for man who was injected with ketamine after altercation with Aurora PD
AURORA, Colo. -- The coroner who reviewed the August death of Elijah McClain said the cause and manner of his death could not be determined with certainty. However, “intense physical exertion and a narrow left coronary artery contributed to (his) death.” The report was released late Friday afternoon by the coroner's office for Adams and Broomfield Counties. It suggested McClain -- who had a rough altercation with police and was injected with the sedative ketamine before going into cardiac arrest and later dying -- may have passed away due to a homicide, an accident or natural causes.
