Dozens gathered in Riverton Thursday evening to remember the man police fatally shot Saturday while calling for authorities to disclose more information about the incident.

A police officer shot and killed 58-year-old Northern Arapaho man Anderson “Andy” Antelope Saturday afternoon outside of the Riverton Walmart after he allegedly stabbed and then continued to attack the officer with a knife

Carrying signs with messages like “Justice 4 Andy” and holding candles outside of the Riverton Police Department and City Hall, about 50 family members, tribal citizens and other community members called for more information — like the name and disciplinary records of the officer who killed Antelope and security camera footage — while recalling memories of him and calling for change to how police interact with Native American and other minority communities.
