A protest against Wauwatosa police attracted more than 100 people Friday.

The demonstrators were demanding answers after a man was shot and killed by police officers there two weeks ago.

The protest began at the Wauwatosa Police Department where demonstrators formed a heart in front of the building and demanded an apology from the police captain on duty.

After not receiving it, the crowd moved toward Mayfair Mall, gaining more people along the way and entered the Barnes & Noble store.

According to an email from Mayfair Mall officials, the demonstrators were loud, but didn't engage in illegal activity. The group marched for about 20 minutes before leaving the mall. 

Jay Anderson was shot by an officer who approached his car parked in Madison Park at 3 a.m. Police say the officer found Anderson had a handgun in his possession, the officer feared for his/her own safety and discharged their own weapon.
