Mother of man shot by Milwaukee County Sheriff's Deputy demands justice

Group gathered near Summerfest demanding justice

MILWAUKEE -- Family and friends of a man who was shot to death last month by a Milwaukee County sheriff's deputy gathered outside Summerfest to ask for justice in the case.
About a dozen people rallied outside Summerfest's main gate Tuesday night. They held up a memorial pamphlet with photos of Williams.
Williams was shot after a deputy attempted to stop his vehicle because he failed to obey a traffic sign. Facebook video shows Williams did not stop and drove the SUV onto the median. The deputy, Michael Truax, has been placed on leave. The shooting remains under investigation by the Waukesha County Sheriff’s Office.
Williams' cousin, Shawna McKee, said the family can't have peace until there is justice.
The family said they did not know if they would file a wrongful death lawsuit.
