COLORADO SPRINGS — Friday, Colorado Springs Neighborhood Services removed a memorial that was set up in the public right of way near where De'Von Bailey was killed.

A News 5 viewer shared video (seen above) that showed her asking police officers assisting the effort about why they were clearing away the items left by the community.

CSPD said the officers were helping code enforcement because neighbors had complained about graffiti and other inappropriate items left with the crosses and flowers.

When the officers left, a group of people returned and set up another memorial with new candles and crosses.

De'Von Bailey was shot and killed while running away from officers back on Aug. 3rd.

Las month, a grand jury found the officers were justified in the use of deadly force.
