MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) – Frustrated protesters went to Miami Gardens City Hall to express their anger over the fatal police shooting of a mentally ill man.
They asked city council members on Wednesday night to release the dash-cam video from the night 25-year-old Lavall Hall was shot in mid-February.
The Miami Herald (http://hrld.us/1zh7LQn ) reports officers Peter Ehrlich and Eddo Trimino fired stun guns at Hall after he hit them with the metal end of a broomstick. Hall continued to charge the officers, and Trimino fired his gun five times. Hall was hit twice, with one bullet to the chest.
Miami Gardens Mayor Oliver Gilbert told the group, led by the Dream Defenders of South Florida, that the city wants to release the tape but the Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office told them it wasn’t possible.
