Supporters of Corey Jones head to Washington, D.C.

RIVIERA BEACH, Fla. - Riviera Beach Mayor Thomas Masters is joining a group of protesters in Washington, D.C. to meet with lawmakers about the shooting death of Corey Jones.

The protesters will spend Thursday asking lawmakers to make changes in how officers are allowed to deal with drivers.

When Jones was shot and killed by Nouman Raja, the former Palm Beach Gardens officer was in an unmarked car and in plain clothes.  He was not wearing a body camera.

The group meeting with lawmakers is asking them to consider requiring all officers to wear body cameras and to pass legislation that would only allow officers in uniform to make traffic stops.
