Video Shows Moment Mentally Ill Man Shot To Death By Cops

At a glance

  • Newly released videos capture the distressing moment an armed 22-year-old Colorado man was shot dead by police after he crashed his car and appeared to be in the throes of a paranoid breakdown.
  • Christian Glass, a citizen of the US, UK and New Zealand, called 911 for help after he crashed into a ditch in the small mountain town of Silver Plume late on June 10 — telling cops he was “terrified.”
  • “I’m stuck in a dangerous place and I will be killed,” he told the dispatcher, saying he was convinced shadowy figures were following him.
  • He continues screaming in clear terror as officers fire bean bags at him — and one of the officers calls out, “Someone Tase his ass!”
  • An autopsy showed that Glass “died as the result of multiple gunshot wounds,” including five in his torso. “The manner of death, in my opinion, is homicide,” the pathologist wrote.
