ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Some family members of those killed by Albuquerque police have presented a petition demanding federal indictments.

Family members on Wednesday called on U.S. Attorney Damon Martinez to seek indictments against Albuquerque officers linked to more than 40 shootings since 2010. They are upset that Bernalillo County District Attorney Kari Brandenburg has not found probable cause against any of the officers.

The petition garnered more than 45,000 signatures.

A spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office did not return a phone call from The Associated Press.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in New Mexico is still evaluating the March police shooting of 38-year-old homeland camper James Boyd. That shooting, caught on video, generated angry protests around the city.
