BEAVERCREEK, Ohio (WDTN) – A group of students is not letting up on their demands in the Walmart shooting case.
The Ohio Student Association met outside the police department Monday morning where John Crawford III was shot and killed by a police officer August 5.
They are renewing their pressure on the police department to overhaul its practices on lethal use of force.
The group met with the police chief Friday and want another meeting soon. The police department did not comment Monday, but say it is cooperating with the group and will continue to interact with members about their concerns.
“Police Chief Evers cannot hide behind his desk,” said Malaya Davis, an OSA leader. “We are demanding answers and accountability in a public forum.”
The OSA is also looking for action against Ronald Ritchie, the man who called 911 to report the Crawford was in the store waving a gun. They also demand that Officer Sean Williams be disarmed or terminated from his job. Williams is the officer who fired the fatal shot.
About ten people were at the protest and news conference Monday morning to make their new demands.
