Family of Select Lounge shooting victims march in protest
Some 100 family members and friends of William H. Torbit Jr., the officer who was shot outside Select Lounge in January, marched Monday to protest the delay in Baltimore Police's investigation.
The protesters, who marched from Select Lounge to City Hall, told WJZ-13 they've been kept in the dark by police about the investigation's progress.
“Think about if it was your son, your daughter, your nephew. You would want some type of answers,” cousin Nathaniel Bond Jr. told the station.
Police Commissioner Frederick H. Bealefeld III said at the time of the incident the investigation into the shooting, where officers fired 41 bullets, would take three weeks. But six weeks later nothing has been finalized.
Police told Crime Beat last week it had not yet received autopsy reports from the state medical examiner's office. Also: the panel of experts who will review the events that led to the shooting haven't been officially picked yet.
Meanwhile, Select Lounge still has a long way to recover.
