DA's office to hold public forum regarding Olde Town shooting decision

In the wake of last week's announcement that no charges will be filed against the Arvada Police officer who shot Johnny Hurley in the Olde Town Arvada shooting, First Judicial District Attorney Alexis King will be holding a virtual forum for members of the community to ask questions about the investigation and subsequent ruling.

The forum will be held on WebEx on Wednesday, Nov. 17 at 6 p.m. and is open to the public. Attendees are asked to submit questions in advance so that King can get to as many as possible.

Michael Teague, Director of Public Affairs for the First Judicial District Attorney's Office, said the forum will allow King to address concerns and questions about the incident head-on.

“As part of her commitment to transparency, DA King believes it's important to speak directly to our community on her decision in the Olde Town tragedy,” said Teague. “We strongly encourage our neighbors throughout Arvada, Jefferson County and our judicial district to attend and have their questions answered.”

King identified APD officer Kraig Brownlow as the officer who shot Hurley as part of a Nov. 8 press conference. She said the decision not to charge Brownlow comes after the findings of a Critical Incident Response Team investigation were presented to King on Sept. 9.
