The interim police chief of the city of Aurora, Vanessa Wilson, said in a statement that the suspended officers were "depicted in photographs near the site where Elijah McClain died."
In McClain's case, police body-camera video shows an Aurora officer getting out of his car, approaching McClain and saying, Stop right there.
The chief's decision could be appealed by the officers under investigation, which would delay the results being released, he said.
The three officers who stopped McClain did not face any criminal charges after an investigation by the district attorney, but Democratic Gov.
Who didn't do it the right way were those agitators who were arming themselves, that were putting on helmets and gas masks and throwing rocks at my officers, Wilson told KUSA-TV.
