Family Of Man Fatally Shot At Wal-Mart Seeks Video

Family members of a man fatally shot by police at a southwestern Ohio Wal-Mart believe store video will provide answers about what happened that day and vindicate him.
 
The family's attorney and the father of 22-year-old John Crawford III said Monday that they have requested surveillance video and communications between police and store security from Aug. 5.
 
Crawford was shot that day at the store in the Dayton suburb of Beavercreek. Police say he did not drop an air rifle when officers told him to do so.

Claiming he was shot and stabbed while fighting back, Wagoner said his attackers used racial language. The incident was being investigated as a hate crime.
