People rally at Ohio Wal-Mart where cops shot man

BEAVERCREEK, Ohio (AP) — As many as 200 people held signs and chanted outside an Ohio Wal-Mart where a young man with an air rifle was fatally shot by police.

The rally Saturday was the latest effort by people wanting to shed more light on the Aug. 5 shooting of 21-year-old John Crawford III inside the store in the Dayton suburb of Beavercreek. Police responded after a caller said a man was waving a gun; they say Crawford refused orders to put down an air rifle.

Signs and chants at the rally urged: "Release the tape." Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine says a special grand jury will meet Sept. 22 to consider charges in the case. He says releasing surveillance video showing the shooting could raise issues of a tainted jury pool.

Crawford's parents want a federal investigation.
