A group that unexpectedly interrupted a Metro Council meeting last month demanding "Justice for Jocques" met with city leaders in an organized forum.

The group calls themselves "Justice for Jocques", for Jocques Clemmons, a man killed last month in a shooting by metro police officer Josh Lippert.

The group had a list of demands they wanted the city to meet, including body cams for Metro Police officers, and a citizens review board with subpoena power.

Metro leaders, including attorneys for the city, told the group those kinds of changes take time, but many in the group said they've waited long enough.

Meanwhile, the investigation into the shooting of Clemmons continued.

Police continued looking for a man shown in surveillance footage, seen getting out of the car Clemmons was driving, seconds before the scuffle between Clemmons and Officer Lippert, which ended in Clemmons being shot and killed.
