Officer Who Fatally Shot 'Completely Innocent' Aurora Mother Back on the Force, Chief Says

The Aurora police chief says the officer who shot and killed a 21-year-old woman during a May traffic stop is back to regular police work.

Savannah Hill, a mother of two, was shot the afternoon of May 5 and died days later.

According to court documents, she was trying to help police arrest a man wanted for a parole violation.

The county prosecutor said Hill was "completely innocent."

Officer David Chatman fired his gun during the traffic stop after the car lurched backward, striking another officer.

Hill was sitting in the driver's seat, but authorities say it was the actions of the fugitive in her backseat that caused the car to move.
