WAUWATOSA -- Supporters of a man killed by a Wauwatosa police officer are demanding key evidence be made public. They say video and audio prove Jay Anderson did nothing wrong. They went straight to the Milwaukee County District Attorney's Office Tuesday, July 19th with a list of demands.

"I still feel like this is still a nightmare to me. It's taken a long time. We haven't heard nothing. Nothing at all," Star Delarosa, Anderson's fiancee said.

Delarosa's fiance, 25-year-old Jay Anderson, was shot and killed by a Wauwatosa police officer during the early morning hours of June 23rd.

"Jay was unjustly murdered," Shawn Muhammad, assistant minister at Nation of Islam said.

Supporters stood together Tuesday at the Milwaukee County District Attorney's Office.

"We demand justice and we stand with this family," Muhammad said.

Anderson was sitting in his vehicle on June 23rd in Madison Park when an officer approached. Police say Anderson had a gun and the officer feared for his safety, but supporters of Anderson and his family say video evidence shows otherwise.

"Jay Anderson`s hands were up. He was in the position of surrender -- unarmed -- and he never reached for a gun or a weapon at any point," Muhammad said.

The group walked into the Milwaukee County District Attorney's Office Tuesday, demanding that video and other evidence be made public, including the name of the officer who shot Anderson.

"In our community, we`re starting to get agitated," Frank Sensabaugh said.

"In terms of the release of evidence, we don`t even have all of the final reports yet on the investigation," Kent Lovern with the DA's Office said.

"I don`t know what to expect or even how to feel about it because I know the type of person he was and he did not deserve to be killed," Delarosa said.

    More BS from the race agitators. What would it take for the these groups to see it from the cop’s perspective or agree that it was a justified shooting?!?!?! A-holes are still holding up Mike Brown as ‘hands up, don’t shoot’…..SMH

    Ah, yes… the religion of peace.

    And how does the family, none of whom were there, know his hands were up and he was not being a threat? Because a guy with a gun on his lap in his car in a park at 3:00 AM is normal…..Hey media, quit giving these thugs all this media coverage and making them into victims instead of the criminals they are. You are just as guilty as Obama is for the senseless murder and assault of cops.
