Mom of unarmed teen killed by deputy: ‘Why did you have to use deadly force?’
ADAMS COUNTY, Colo. -- The mother of a teenager shot and killed by an Adams County sheriff’s deputy said her son did not have to die. The unarmed 19-year-old was killed Thursday morning outside an apartment building south of Thornton in the 8700 block of Galen Court. A multiagency taskforce is working to collect evidence for prosecutors to review. Prosecutors will be responsible for determining if the shooting of Kyler Grabbingbear was justified under Colorado law. But, regardless of legality, the teen’s mom said the shooting was unnecessary.
