Loved ones of a Black man shot and killed by Jacksonville police last week at an Argyle Forest hotel and the family’s attorney spoke out Tuesday, demanding a transparent investigation and the release of all video of the incident that exists.

Attorney Marwan Porter and loved ones said at a news conference that Michael Hughes, 32, was a father of two little boys and a good person who had a mental illness.

According to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, Hughes was fatally shot March 30 by Officer J. H. Wing at the Quality Inn on Youngerman Circle after Hughes got control of the officer’s Taser and stunned him.
