MILWAUKEE (AP) — Friends and family members say they want answers in the death of a Milwaukee man who was fatally shot during an encounter with police three months ago.

About 40 people gathered Sunday near where 32-year-old Jermaine Claybrooks was shot on Milwaukee's north side.

Claybrooks was shot March 16 during an encounter with West Allis and Milwaukee police and officers with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration. Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn says a drug investigation led officers in plain clothes to Claybrooks' vehicle, where they were "confronted by an individual with a firearm in his hand."

A report on the shooting was sent to prosecutors in May. An attorney for Claybrooks' family tells the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel ( ) he has a meeting with the district attorney's office this week.
