PASCO, WA- Not only supporters for Zambrano-Montes came out this weekend, but families who have had similar experiences with law enforcement in their own lives.

Dennis Brown was at the rally at Volunteer Park and he explained why he was there to show his support.  Brown's son Andrew L. Shane was shot and killed by Kennewick police officers in 2006, after officers said Shane tried to run them over with the vehicle he was sitting in.

Brown said his son needed some help at the time and that him and his family tried to do everything they could before something like this happened.

With the recent death of Zambrano-Montes, brown said he fully relates to the family and wishes to see more done to provide help to those who need it.

"It does bring back emotions.  We tried for a very long time to help our son.  We were very limited on what help we could get him.  It doesn't help when our government hasn't trained the people that are to protect us," said Brown.

Brown wishes to ultimately have more resources available, whether it is mental help or drug addiction help, so that deaths like this will not happen again.
