Jacobo, 33, was unarmed when he was killed in an alley at Scottsdale Estates on Saturday afternoon. Sheriff's officials said he was shot because he tried to grab the deputy's gun during a struggle.

But witnesses who were hanging out with Jacobo when the deputies arrived alleged that he was merely trying to run away and did not reach for the deputy's weapon.

About 200 Scottsdale residents marched on City Hall late Tuesday afternoon, carrying signs that accused the deputy of murder.

"This is a completely unjustified shooting," said attorney Dale Galipo, who is representing the Jacobo family.
