The family of a man killed by Kenosha Police in 2004 is not giving up on their fight for justice.
Michael Bell Jr. was killed after he was pulled over by police in November, 2004. He was shot during a struggle with police when an officer believed Bell had reached for his weapon.
The officers involved were quickly cleared in the shooting after an internal investigation.
After a private investigation spanning 15 years, at a cost exceeding $1.5 million dollars, the Bell family is expected to reveal new findings Tuesday afternoon.
“We always wanted to know the truth and we couldn’t get it,” Michael Bell Sr. told WTMJ. “What we’re bringing forward, regarding my son’s case, will benefit law enforcement and the community alike.”
The Bell family believes the new findings will be the basis for complaints that will be filed with Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers and Attorney General Josh Kaul.
They’ll be joined by about 12 other families who have been impacted by police shootings.

Wednesday’s press conference will be streamed here.
