A lawyer for the family of a man fatally shot by an off-duty Pentagon security officer (above left) is demanding prosecutors release surveillance video of the shooting at the Takoma Overlook condos.

Attorney Malik Shabazz, with Black Lawyers for Justice, says in the interest of transparency, it's critical that State Attorney John McCarthy release all images of the deadly shooting of Dominque Williams and James Johnson. Shabazz represents Williams' family.

But Ramon Korionoff, a spokesman for the state's attorney, said he's unlikely to release the video for months as he prosecutes assault and homicide charges against the police officer.

"We're happy for the charges, but we need to see the nakedness of the brutality that happened in this case and that's happening right here in the Washington, D.C. area," Shabazz said.
