COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO -- Protesters have taken to a neighborhood in north Colorado Springs to demand the firing of an officer involved in the shooting of De'Von Bailey.
Bailey was shot and killed a year ago, Monday. The two officers were cleared of criminal charges after the shooting. See our timeline of the events here.
The protesters are walking through a neighborhood near Pulpit Rock Park, where one of the police officers, Sgt. Alan Van't Land, allegedly lives. They're calling for Van't Land to be fired from the Colorado Springs Police Department.
Several people in the group are armed with rifles, and at least one resident displayed a rifle when protesters arrived at his home.
