NOW: Family, friends march for Milwaukee man fatally shot by Walworth County deputy 5 years ago

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Family and friends of a 21-year-old Milwaukee man shot by a Walworth County sheriff's deputy outside an East Troy restaurant five years ago marked Wednesday's sad anniversary with a march.

Dozens gathered on the north side to remember Christopher Davis as a sweet and kind young man.

The group also expressed anger that the deputy who shot him has not been charged.

Davis was in a car with two other men driving through Roma's parking lot when police ordered the driver to stop. When he didn't, a deputy opened fire, killing Davis in the passenger seat.

His mother and sister expressed their heartbreak. 

"We're still screaming justice for Christopher David," said mother Doretha Lock. "I'm asking all of you to continue keeping his name in the atmosphere."

"It just means so much that we have so many people rallying around us, even when we feel like we're stuck," said Paulara Davis, Christopher's sister.

Davis would have turned 27 next month.
