Police shooting victim's family gets atty.

The family of a man killed last week by Riverdale police has hired an attorney and is planning a rally. On Thursday morning, while sitting in a car with two teenagers, Riverdale police say an officer approached the car and asked all three to show their hands.

Police say Brandon Harper, 23, refused, and the officer, fearing for his life, opened fire.

Attorneys for Harper's family say he was unarmed. The family will hold a rally before Tuesday's Riverdale board meeting.
