Data from an investigation of the Pasco Police shooting of Antonio Zambrano-Montes was released this afternoon by the Franklin County Prosecutor.

Many people have already begun downloading pictures, videos and documents from a web portal. Some of the information will be released in subsequent batches by Franklin County Prosecutor Shawn Sant.

Antonio Zambrano-Montes’ mother Agapita Montes-Rivera spoke at a press conference Tuesday afternoon. She said she has a lot of memories of her son.

“He was really joyful, especially when he was with us,” she said through an interpreter.

Antonio Zambrano-Montes was shot in a crowded intersection in early February as he ran from police officers. A massive police study of the shooting has been underway since. The prosecutor has not said whether any officers would be charged in his death.
