Two Colorado sheriff’s deputies have been indicted by a county grand jury in the death of Christian Glass, a 22-year-old man who was shot dead in his car after calling 911 amid what his mother called a depression nervous.

A grand jury on Wednesday returned an indictment against Clear Creek County Sheriff’s Deputies Andrew Buen and Kyle Gould, the office of Fifth Judicial District Attorney Heidi McCollum said in a news release.

Buen was charged with second degree murder, official misconduct and reckless endangerment, while Gould was charged with criminally negligent homicide and reckless endangerment.

The charges stem from a June 11 shooting in the small mountain town of Silver Plume, after Glass called 911 for roadside assistance. His SUV had gotten stuck on an embankment, leaving him trapped on the desolate road.

Body camera videos show Glass repeatedly refusing to leave his vehicle, telling deputies he was “terrified” without giving further explanation. After more than an hour of negotiations, police said Glass became uncooperative, so they smashed the passenger window and pulled a knife from the vehicle.

Glass appeared to panic in response and grabbed another knife from the car, prompting officers to shoot, authorities said.

Buen and Gould were also fired from the department on Wednesday.
