WAYCROSS, Ga. -- They're demanding answers and marching for their neighborhood. A few dozen protestors at Garlington Heights want to know why 26-year-old Andrew Poole was shot by Waycross police.

It happened last Thursday, while officers were searching for a person of interest in a murder case -- inside an apartment complex. The G-B-I says the officer ran into Poole inside an apartment unit, felt threatened and open fire.

Shelando King says she's the one who called police about the person of interest. But now knowing that someone unrelated to case got shot, she's rethinking that decision to call police.

The march lasted about 30 minutes. Organizers hoped to get 300 people to march. Far fewer showed up.
