Death of Christian Glass: parents demand justice 3 months after deputy shoots, kills 22-year-old who was in distress

The parents of a 22-year-old shot and killed by a Clear Creek County Sheriff’s deputy want that person held accountable for their son’s death.

The parents of Christian Glass — Simon and Sally Glass — spoke about his death in early June publicly for the first time on Tuesday and released body cam footage from that night.
