MONUMENT — El Paso County Sheriff's Office deputies involved in September's fatal shooting of 20-year-old David Page in Monument have been cleared of any charges, according to the 4th Judicial District Attorney's Office.

Monument police officers and El Paso County deputies were called to the 200 block of 2nd Street just after 3 p.m. Sept. 29 after receiving calls that a person was firing an air assault rifle at pedestrians and vehicles from inside a residence.

The 20-year-old was killed after pointing a B-B gun at the SWAT members. His family said he struggled with mental illness, which they say the Monument Police knew about and that there should have been other ways to safely de-escalate the situation.
