PASCO, WA- Hundreds of people gathered at Volunteer Park in Pasco Saturday just right across the street from City Hall to show their support for Zambrano-Montes while marching and chanting for justice.

Volunteer Park is usually quiet, but not Saturday.  Crowds of people filled the park in Pasco as they demanded something be done about the recent officer-involved shooting.

"I'm here for accountability and to change laws that are causing these kinds of problems," said Nicholas Lambert, Walla Walla University.

Protests are not uncommon.  We have seen them in other situations like Ferguson, Missouri where supporters demanded justice. 

The crowds in Pasco shouted at the top of their lungs as they made their way to 10th and Lewis Street.

Dennis Brown was there supporting the protest because he knows what it feels like for a son to be killed.  He also wants people to get the help they need to avoid these incidents.

"Until we can get some help for the people that need it, this isn't going to go away," said Brown.

People came from all over going against the shooting of Antonio Zambrano-Montes.  One supporter traveled all the way from Spokane.

"We've dealt with this in Spokane and I want to see this community organize itself and not be organized by people who are going to speak for them, so they can express their true message," said David Brookbank.

They are not sure the outcome, but for now, the family just wants their voices to be heard.

"We don't want to have anymore incidents like this. That's what we want.  Not just for our family, for anybody else, the community.  That's what we want, the outcome.  Make changes," said Zambrano-Montes' cousin, Maria Madrigal Zambrano.
