DAYTON, Ohio (AP) -- Supporters of a man killed in a shooting by apartment security guards have rallied to protest the southwest Ohio shooting they want investigated as a hate crime.
More than 50 people gathered outside a Dayton courthouse on Friday in support of 25-year-old Dante Price, who police say was fatally shot March 1 at an apartment complex.
The Dayton Daily News reports (http://bit.ly/H3ZK8E ) that one of two guards says in a 911 call that they had to shoot at Price because he was trying to hit them with his vehicle.
Federal officials are reviewing a request by the Dayton chapter of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference that the Justice Department investigate.
Price's supporters want the guards charged.
Dayton police have not released their report, saying they are still investigating.
