Crowd wants release of video in Wal-Mart shooting

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A crowd of about 100 people gathered at Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine's office to call for the release of in-store video in the fatal police shooting of a man at a Dayton-area Wal-Mart.

Organizers tell the Dayton Daily News ( ) they want to see what happened on Aug. 5 when 21-year-old John Crawford III was fatally shot by police who said he refused to drop the air rifle he was holding at 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 DeWine's office.

DeWine spokeswoman Jill Del Greco says she's not aware of any plans to release any video prior to the closing of the case.
