A contingent of activists in Wilmington are calling for a federal investigation into a deadly police shooting.

Jeremy McDole was in a wheelchair when he was shot and killed by officers last September.

Police say McDole was reaching for a gun in his pants.

NAACP leaders and clergy members gathered Wednesday to ask the U.S. Justice Department to review the case.

Last week, the Delaware Attorney General's Office opted not to charge any of the four officers involved, but did recommend sanctions against Senior Cpl. Joseph Dellose.

A report says he made poor decisions, and was the first to fire on McDole.

The activists demand Dellose be fired.
