Terrence Sterling's family to meet with police union

Terrence Sterling's family is set to meet with the DC Police Union on Tuesday.

WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- Terrence Sterling's family and attorney will be meeting with the chair of the police union soon to discuss the case. 

Meanwhile protestors continue to demand answers from the city after 31-year-old Terrence Sterling was fatally shot by police about three weeks ago in D.C.

"You told us you wanted to be transparent. You weren't that. You told us you wanted to be accountable and you wanted to stand up for your city. You didn't do that. You lied to us," one protestor said.

On Monday night more than 200 people marched through the city asking Mayor Muriel Bowser to release additional video of the police-involved shooting when Sterling was killed. 

Sterling was shot and killed September 11 after police say he intentionally drove his motorcycle into the door of a police cruiser. The officer then shot Sterling. 

He did not turn on his body camera until after firing the fatal shots, which is against police policy. The issue with the body camera has caused even more anger among protestors. 

Mayor Bowser's office has confirmed there is additional video, however it has not been released because of privacy issues.
