COLUMBUS (AP) — A crowd of about 100 people gathered at the Ohio attorney general’s office to call for the release of store security video in the fatal police shooting of a man at a Dayton-area Wal-Mart.


Organizers said they want to see what happened on Aug. 5 when 22-year-old John Crawford III was fatally shot by police. Officers say he refused to drop an air rifle inside a Wal-Mart store in Beavercreek.


The group that gathered Monday night in Columbus called for transparency in the investigation, which is being headed by the Bureau of Criminal Investigation, a branch of Attorney General Mike DeWine’s office.


DeWine’s spokeswoman Jill Del Greco said she’s not aware of any plans to release video before the case is closed.
