 ORLANDO, FL - Attorneys representing the parents of the Pasco man recently shot by Pasco Police officers held a news conference in Orlando, Florida Friday afternoon.  Jose Baez was there in person and Benjamin Crump appeared on a tv screen from another location.  They say they've been hired by Antonio Zambrano's parents because they feel the death of their son was wrong and it's become a human rights issue.

  The attorneys announced there'd been a third autopsy performed on Zambrano's body, by Dr. Werner Spitz in Florida.  However, without the ability to compare results with the first autopsy that had been done in Pasco they are left with more questions than answers.  Baez said one of those questions remains, exactly how many times was Zambrano shot.  The third autopsy showed 6 or 7 entry wounds and a couple grazing wounds.

  The attorneys said they sent a letter to the Department of Justice calling for the start of a federal investigation.

  At one point Crump compared the death of Zambrano to the shooting of Mike Brown in Ferguson, Missouri saying both men had their hands up, and also compared Zambrano's death to Eric Garner's death in New York because both were documented on video.  Crump also claimed the videos posted online of Zambrano's shooting have increased tensions between law enforcement and the Latino community.

  The attorneys said Zambrano's body will be sent back to Seattle soon, and from there will eventually be sent to Mexico.
