Family members and community groups gathered Sunday in front of Gaithersburg City Hall, in Maryland, to demand justice for Kwamena Ocran, the 24-year-old man shot and killed by Gaithersburg Police Department officers during a foot chase earlier this month.

“We need to know what the facts are. We need answers,” one demonstrator said into a microphone.

Police said Ocran was under surveillance by a plain clothes street crime unit when he was killed on Jan. 8, and that he ran from officers when they approached him.
