Family of man fatally shot seeks information

BEAVERCREEK (AP) — Ohio’s attorney general plans a news conference as family members of a man fatally shot by police at a Wal-Mart store push for release of surveillance video.
Mike DeWine and Greene County Prosecutor Stephen Haller plan to discuss the case today, just before a separate news conference by the family’s attorney.
The family wants answers about the shooting of 21-year-old John Crawford III, slain Aug. 5 in the Dayton suburb of Beavercreek.
DeWine has said a special grand jury will convene on the case next week.
Police have said Crawford was shot after he didn’t drop an air rifle when instructed to do so by Beavercreek police.
The family was shown some of the video. DeWine has said it is part of an ongoing investigation and isn’t being released publicly.
