WARNING: Images and video will contain disturbing and graphic content.

Nearly one week after the deadly shooting of 25-year-old Jayland Walker, city officials from Akron will gather at 1 p.m. today for a press conference.

During the press conference, Akron Mayor Dan Horrigan and Akron Police Chief Steve Mylett will release further details of the shooting that occurred on Monday, June 27 as well as the bodycam footage from the shooting.

Prior to the press conference, Chief Mylett is set to meet with the Walker family to allow them to review the footage before the media and public see it.

Over the past few days, family, friends, pastors and the public have taken to the streets of Akron demanding justice for Walker as they all ask the question of "why?"

On Friday, 3News Investigates spoke with the Walker family attorney Robert DiCello who has already viewed the bodycam footage.

"It's difficult to watch," DiCello said. "I'm here because the family wants me to tell Northeast Ohio, please do not meet violence with violence. The family doesn't want a violent reaction, they just want peace, dignity and justice for Jayland."

Walker's family members have been encouraging the public to remain peaceful at this time.

8 pigs, 90 shots with 60 hitting Mr. Walker. This was a GD modern Lynching.

There IS going to come a time when the hunters become the permanent hunted. KKKops, Judges, DA, Asst. DA & Clerks, ALL these people have #SoftTargets of their own you know?

Do your homework and “covertly” act accordingly.

And what is even more insulting is to say, they administred first aid, for what????? He or anyone else would be dead or dying with no hopes of being saved after 60 Bullet holes in your body woooooowwwwwww! This is as bad as the Laquan McDonald case frfr, this is sickening and the video didn't show anything to clear up the facts they've specified at all , other than the sounds of them killing this young man. Prayers to his Family

@pawsglo: You forgot they cuffed his hands behind his back, this tactic is so you bleed out at a much faster rate. THEN they acted as to save him which is insulting our intelligence. #MissMeWithTheBS we need to go back to using gurilla warfare like they did in the 60s after those little girls were killed in that bombing. I explained this to Mr. Black the other day. The REAL reason LBJ signed the civil rights act is because racist KKKops and store owners WERE killed and there was no news broadcasted to the masses. There was a racist Italian store owner around the area of Bessimer Alabama that liked putting his hand in little black girls under garments, he was taken...NEVER to be seen again and his store? Burned to the GD basement. His wife and kids had a hard time and moved out of state. I hope that bitch had to suck daily dick to keep the lights on.
