Akron, Ohio Mayor Dan Horrigan and Police Chief Steve Mylett are expected to address the death of Jayland Walker, who reportedly was killed as he ran from officers after an attempted traffic stop.

Walker, a Black man, was shot by police dozens of times, a lawyer for his family said, citing a review of police body-worn camera footage.

Akron police have said Walker, 25, fired a gun at officers who were pursuing him. They plan to release their body camera footage following a news conference on Sunday, hours before a protest march is scheduled.
