The Justice Department announced late Tuesday night they would be looking into the death of Black Aurora, Colorado resident Elijah McClain to determine if a federal civil rights investigation is needed.

The 23-year-old's father, LaWayne Mosley, called for all involved to be "held accountable for their actions."

"He's just a bundle of joy. I mean, just my baby. My baby boy," he told CBS News' Jamie Yuccas. McClain's August 2019 death at the hands of police and the lack of consequences for those involved recently sparked a national outcry following protests over the death of George Floyd who, like McClain, told police "I can't breathe."

McClain had been walking home from a convenience store when he was approached by police after a 911 caller reported a suspicious person in a ski mask. Though the person told 911 they did not believe McClain was a threat, officers detained him — even when McClain himself told them he was unarmed.

Police claimed McClain tried to reach for an officer's gun, but it was not shown on the police body camera.

They placed him in a chokehold as he pleaded with them, "I'm just different, that's all… I don't have a gun, I don't do that stuff." Police called paramedics who then administered ketamine, an anesthetic used, according to Director of Denver's Emergency Medical Response System Dr. Kevin McVaney, in "severe, severe agitated people."
