Justice for Brian is the theme of a protest staged Thursday in downtown Mansfield, with more than fifty people holding signs. 28-year-old Brian Garber of Lexington was shot and killed by Richland County Sheriff's Deputies in March, after they responded to a domestic violence call. The demonstrators stand on the four corners at the intersection of Park Avenue and Diamond Street, as passing motorists honk their horns in support. Garber claimed he had a gun and would use it, but no gun was found in his bedroom in his parents home on Mill Run Road. His death has left his mother Connie deeply in grief, but this protest helps her feel empowered. Brian Garber's autopsy results have been completed, and Ohio B-C-I is close to sending the findings of its lengthy investigation to the Richland County Prosecutor's office. The case will likely be presented to a grand jury.
