Activists in the Justice for Amilcar Coalition have repeatedly asked for charges to be filed against officers in police shootings, and activists Thursday demanded that District Attorney George Gascón conclude an ongoing investigation and charge the officers who shot Perez Lopez nearly two years ago.
