BEAVERCREEK, Ohio (AP) - Residents of a southwestern Ohio city have once again voiced their concerns to elected officials about the fatal police shooting of a man at a Wal-Mart last summer.

The residents question the August death of 22-year-old John Crawford who was killed while carrying an air rifle. Police said they believed he had a real assault rifle, and a grand jury declined charges.

The Dayton Daily News reports (https://bit.ly/1BoA9VV ) Monday’s city council meeting was the second time residents have addressed the body with their concerns.

Diane Dover told council members she has a son the same age as Crawford and has been troubled by the shooting since it happened.

Cheryl Coy told council members the city needed to address the “tragic” and “unjustified” killing of Crawford.
