WACO, TX (KXXV) -

The family of Kerry Bradley continues their push to find out more about what happened when Waco Police shot and killed the 37-year-old two weeks ago.

Family members and members of two activist groups out of Dallas chanted "until we get justice, we will say his name, Kerry Bradley" before the Waco City Council at their meeting tonight.

Officers from the Waco Police Department's drug enforcement unit and SWAT shot and killed Bradley on August first after they say he ran over Officer William Graeber with an SUV. Officers were trying to serve a search warrant on Bradley at the time.

Bradley's family doesn't believe the police department's account of the events, and they're asking the city council for an independent investigation.

"We are waiting for them to answer, but guess what, we will take action towards this city if they fail to give us justice in a timely manner," Dominique Alexander of the Next Generation Action Network said.

The Texas Rangers are looking into the officer-involved shooting.

City council members left the meeting before making comments on the possibility of an independent investigation. So far, the Waco Police Department and the City of Waco have not replied to requests for comments either.

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks with Russian President Vladimir Putin during a press conference after their meeting at the Presidential Palace in Helsinki, Finland, Monday, July 16, 2018.

    Standing alongside Putin, Trump steered clear of any confrontation with the Russian, going so far as to question American intelligence and last week's federal indictments that accused 12 Russians of hacking into Democratic email accounts to hurt Hillary Clinton in 2016.
