Colorado Springs police release police shooting video of Jose Aponte

Video from a Colorado Springs officer’s body-worn camera and additional information on a police shooting was released Wednesday.

In the early morning hours of March 13 officers responded to the 1000 block of North Foote Avenue on a report of a woman screaming and domestic violence, said Commander Tish Olszewski, in a Significant Event Briefing video.

β€œThe video contains graphic descriptions and footage that may be disturbing to some individuals,” police said. β€œViewer discretion is advised.”

The suspect, 52-yera-old Jose Aponte, was hiding in an attic space cluttered with furniture, boxes and other items. Two officers ordered Aponte to β€œshow your hands,” but Aponte did not comply. Instead, he picked up a large, dark plastic bag and hid himself and his hands behind it.

β€œYou shot my dog,” Aponte said to the two officers. β€œI’m going to die too.”

On March 12, a CSPD officer fired one shot at Aponte’s dog, described by police as a large pit bull, when the dog attacked him, according to the briefing. Police were responding to a complaint about the dog and to serve an arrest warrant on Aponte, when the animal was fatally shot. They did not find Aponte during the March 12 incident.
