Greenwood Village Police Release Name Of Former Officer In Deadly Altercation On The Eve Of Thanksgiving | Colorado News


Nov 29 — The Greenwood Village Police Department released the name of a former policeman involved in a deadly altercation in southeast Aurora the day before Thanksgiving.

A Denver Gazette registration application confirmed that Adam Holen, 36, resigned on November 1, after spending more than five years in the force.

No reason was given for his resignation, but authorities said Holen no longer worked in law enforcement.

There were no arrests in the incident, which left a 17-year-old dead and Holen in hospital with injuries that authorities say are not life-threatening. Aurora police continue to question witnesses.

Doorbell surveillance footage captured the argument between Holen and a car full of teenagers around 10:30 p.m. Wednesday night in the 4900 block of South Addison Way. Amber Roseborough, who tried to save the teenager’s life by performing CPR, said her daughter was the driver of the car. Her daughter parked in front of the family home and intended to come in to change clothes and get money for gasoline.

It was then that Roseborough says Holen pulled over and told the five teenagers that he took a photo of their license plate and accused them of reckless driving. Three teenagers were in the back of the car and two in the front.

Someone shouted, “This is not your neighborhood,” as an argument ensued.

“As soon as I opened the door the gunshots were happening,” Roseborough told the Denver Gazette.

Authorities have yet to release the name of the teenager who died in the altercation. The Arapahoe County coroner said an autopsy is expected to be performed on Monday.
