The 4th Judicial District Attorney’s Office determined not to file charges in the Sept. 29 deputy-involved shooting in Monument that killed 20-year-old David Page. 

On Sept. 29, the Monument Police Department received reports that Page “was firing what was believed to be an air assault rifle at people and vehicles passing by the front of his apartment.”

When the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office SWAT unit responded, Page retreated into his apartment and returned with what appeared to be a semi-automatic pistol and, according to the statement, pointed it directly at law enforcement.

Two members of the SWAT unit fired five shots total at Page, and he was pronounced dead at the scene, the statement says.

Likewise, the district attorney’s office on Dec. 20 determined not to file charges against Colorado Springs Police Department officers who shot and killed 38-year-old Joshua Vigil on July 23.
