The brother of the black man who was shot dead by US police this month called the video of the murder “the most horrific” he’s ever seen.

Michigan police this week released footage of a police officer shooting 26-year-old Patrick Lyoya in the head after a scuffle over a taser.

Mr Lyoya’s family, Congolese refugees, spoke to the media on Thursday and demanded that the agent’s name be released.

State police are investigating the incident that sparked protests.
