WEIRTON, W.Va. West Virginia‘s chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union is seeking details related to the death of a Pennsylvania man who was fatally shot by police outside his ex-girlfriend’s house in Weirton.
During the stand off, reports say Ronald Williams Jr, pointed his gun at officers after telling his girlfriend he intended to get police to shoot him.
The city of Weirton tells us that they have received the Freedom of Information Act requests.
Interim executive director of the ACLU says the police department has responded, asking for a short deadline extension to August 8.
“It’s just to make sure that the proper procedures and proper policy was being followed,” said Jeff Martin.
Martin says the main concerns the group has, is why the dash cameras in the cruisers were not on, and why no names of any officers involved have been released.
