BEAVERCREEK, Ohio (WDTN) – 2 NEWS has just learned that the Crawford family’s request to see the videotape of the Walmart shooting has been granted.  We have confirmed through The Cochran Firm that the family will view the video it sought for several days.

The family believes that the video holds the key to what really happened the night John Crawford, III was shot by Beavercreek police at the Walmart store.  Authorities have refused to release the video while the investigation continues into what happened.

Ohio Attorney General Mike Dewine is making his way to the Greene County Courthouse in Xenia now for a 4:00 p.m. news conference about today’s developments.  The AG’s Office was assigned to the case shortly after the incident.

Beavercreek police shot and killed John Crawford, III after he was seen in the store with a gun on August 5.  Officers said Crawford refused to put down the gun at their request.  It was later revealed that the gun was in fact, a pellet gun.

A woman, Angela Williams, 37, collapsed as she was fleeing the store with her children.

The NAACP also just announced Tuesday that it will investigate the shooting at the Crawford family’s request.
