Several elected officials have joined community protesters in calling for charges to be filed against Officer Michael Rosfeld for the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Antwon Rose, according to KDKA.

Representative Jake Wheatley told a crowd of protesters gathered in Downtown Pittsburgh, “There should be a board, or commission that’s empowered to do its own investigation to take it out of the hands of the locals so politics is not a part of it.”

Wheatley also called for a reform on police training.

Allegheny County Controller Chelsa Wagner thanked the protesters for their continued demonstrations.

“We support you absolutely to everyone who has been protesting,” Wagner said.
