The officers admitted to using force during the arrest, the sheriff said, but he's "not coming to the conclusion that this was a chokehold".

"I think there needs to be some oversight with another agency investigating", she said.

Robinson had been a target of a narcotics investigation, suspected of dealing drugs, Lopinto told re porters last week. While they say the 22-year-old had his share of issues, they say he didn't deserve to die.

As he was trying to drive away Robinson crashed into two vehicles before abandoning his auto and taking off on foot.

Following the scuffle, Robinson was arrested in his backyard and taken into custody.

A struggle ensued, the lieutenant said, with deputies eventually handcuffing Robinson. Detectives and paramedics performed CPR and transported Robinson to nearby Ochsner Medical Center, but he could not be revived. "We are hoping for a thorough investigation, an arrest and prosecution of those that caused his death unjustifiably".

Video from a security camera at the gas station where Robinson had been parked captures the moment when officers initiated the confrontation.

Jefferson Parish Sheriff's officials had initially said he died due to his chronic asthma after a police chase. Robinson hopped back into his vehicle when he spotted detectives approaching and sped out of the parking lot, hitting two JPSO cars during the brief, half-block auto chase, authorities said.

"I understand. this investigation will be under a microscope, understand it fully", Lopinto told reporters.

Lopinto mentioned it was too early to conclude whether or not a choke maintain was used. Lopinto's predecessor Newell Normand said the cameras encourage "Monday-morning quarterbacking" of law enforcement decisions, in a 2015 interview explaining why he had not and would not support adding the equipment. 'It's whether the force was excessive'.

Monday night's march happened after authorities in Jefferson Parish announced preliminary autopsy results indicating Keeven Robinson had signs of trauma from pressure on his neck and that he died of asphyxiation.

He said complete results, including toxicology reports, will take weeks.

Lopinto and coroner Gerald Cvitanovich met with Robinson's family Monday before a 10 a.m. press conference.

"We want the young black men to be able to walk the street", she said during a press conference with the family's attorney. They administered life saving techniques to the Robinson, but to no avail.

Hilliard added that his clients would feel "more comfortable" if Jefferson Parish police weren't involved in the investigation.

When asked for her reaction to the autopsy results, the 61-year-old grandmother said she was not surprised. "We should be able to apprehend people without incident and we're not able to do that", says marcher Regina Hollins.
