The Royal Black Panther Party Grand Rapids organized the march to the commission’s meeting at City Hall. Protesters chanted “Black lives matter,” “No justice, no peace” and “Say his name: Patrick” as they streamed into City Hall, The Grand Rapids Press reported.
The chants could be heard nine floors up in commission chambers, where the panel met for the first time since a Grand Rapids police officer killed Patrick Lyoya on April 4.
Grand Rapids police have not revealed what the video shows. A few hours before the march and the meeting, Police Chief Eric Winstrom announced he would release footage of the fatal shooting Wednesday afternoon.
