Mr. Wright and Mr. Crawford’s father were recently able to view Walmart surveillance tape footage of the fatal Police shooting in Beavercreek. According to a report from the Associated Press, Mr. Wright said that the footage contradicts police accounts that asserted Mr. Crawford was waving the rifle around and pointing it at customers. Instead, the video indicates that Mr. Crawford was doing nothing more than shopping at the time of the tragic incident, Mr. Wright said.
