Mcclain, a 23-year-old Black man, died last summer in Aurora, Colorado.

Three officers put him in a chokehold after they say he struggled with them after he was stopped for “being suspicious.”

Paramedics later sedated McClain who died days later.

Organizers of the event say they’ve been inspired by other violin vigils held across the county in recent weeks.
