WATCH: Families of Men Shot by Metro Police Officers Demand Justice, Police Accountability

ASHVILLE, Tenn. – The families of Jocques Clemmons and Daniel Hambrick spoke out at a sit-in outside the East Precinct Monday night.

Dozens of people attended the event meant to keep attention on the investigation into Hambrick’s shooting and to demand charges be filed against Officer Andrew Delke.

Hambrick was shot and killed in July while running away from Delke.

Metro police say Hambrick had a gun at the time of the incident.

Community members say excessive force was used.

The family of Jocques Clemmons started the sit-ins last year after Clemmons was shot and killed by a Metro police officer in February 2017.

Police say Clemmons also had a gun.

At the sit-in, the group also demanded a community oversight board be formed to investigate complaints of police misconduct.

In August, enough signatures were gathered to get the idea on the November ballot.

The TBI says they’re mostly done with their investigation into the Hambrick shooting.

The case is now being reviewed by the District Attorney’s office.
