ALBANY, NY (NEWS10) – Albany police say they are currently investigating the death of a 39-year-old man in their custody.
But other family members are still concerned.
“I don’t understand why they stopped him to begin with,” Ivy’s sister, Aneisha Johnson, said.
Cox said police initially approached Ivy because of suspicious behavior.
“We know it was based on suspicious activity at this point, but we still need to in our investigation find out exactly what that activity was,” he said.
“Our biggest concern is that some of the residents around here have a very different account of how things took place,” Staton said.
Cox, however, said there was “nothing pointing to any excessive force at this time.”
A rally is being held at 7 p.m. Friday at the Albany Police Department South Station on Arch Street. Some family members will be in attendance with community members who said they want justice for Ivy.
