NEW BRUNSWICK - Many people have been rallying outside New Brunswick's City Hall in the 13 days since the shooting death of Barry Deloatch, 47.
About a dozen other people were gathered at a park across the street from where the shooting happened. A council meeting was held tonight, where the protesters were allowed to speak for the first time. Council chambers were filled with about 50 protesters. Protesters asked for the city to pay for the funeral services.
Deloatch died last month shortly after running from two police officers into a narrow alley between two homes. A law enforcement source tells News 12 New Jersey that Deloatch found a metal pipe and began hitting one of the officers. The officer's partner then fired two shots.
Rally held in response to fatal police-involved shooting
