OKLAHOMA CITY -

Jesse Jackson is scheduled to lead a march in downtown Oklahoma City Tuesday in support of the family of Robin Howard.

Howard died while in police custody. Last summer, police say he ran when they tried to pull him over. Police say they used approved techniques to restrain him, but Howard’s rib was broken in the struggle. Howard later died after that broken rib punctured a lung. The OKC Police Department didn't notify Howard’s family of his death until four days after he died.

Police and the district attorney’s office investigated and found no wrongdoing by the police officers.

However, Howard’s family wants information about the police department investigation made public. They also want the officers involved in the incident taken off the street.
