Robinson's family has called for the investigation into the 22-year-old's death to be handled by an agency other than the local police.
'They're grieving, and today, they had to find out that Keeven lost his life at the hands of another, and that's very, very hard for them'.
The station also adds that the march came hours after the coroner released Robinson's autopsy that stated he had traumatic injuries to the soft tissue of his neck and that his death was caused by the actions of another. Robinson was allegedly being investigated for drugs and was spotted at a local gas station when he took off in his vehicle.
"We want the truth to the community", Spiller said.
Robinson was in custody when he died on May 10 after deputies caught him near Jefferson Highway and Labarre Place in someone's backyard. There was a struggle, Lopinto said, before Robinson was handcuffed. "All knew all those things had existed, and as I said on Thursday, an autopsy had to be determined, to determine what the cause of death was", Lopinto said.
Jefferson Parish Sheriff Joe Lopinto confirmed that all four deputies involved in Robinson's arrest were white, but refused to identify them by name.
When Robinson's family emerged from Lopinto's office Monday morning, his mother walked slowly, wearily, supported by tearful relatives.
Robinson had been a target of a narcotics investigation, suspected of dealing drugs, Lopinto told re porters last week.
He said it was too early to conclude whether a choke hold was used during the struggle, adding that Robinson's history of asthma may have played a role in his death.
The attorney representing Robinson's family, Hester Hilliard, said they are seeking an independent autopsy. They said they feared the officers had either beaten or strangled him to death. "Our police officers have to use force and are justified to use force on many occasions". The four detectives who arrested involved in the incident have been read their rights and put on administrative leave.
"For me it means unity, coming together and pretty much just supporting the family", Regina Hollins told WWL-TV. He said the detectives have provided statements and are cooperating with the agency. "I have every faith in the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office to do their job and to do it correctly".
Robinson's father, Steve Jackson, said "Enough is enough ... it's time for it to stop man".
Gaylor Spiller, president of the Jefferson Parish chapter of the NAACP, said in a news conference that she considers Lopinto a "decent, honorable sheriff". "But they're afraid of the police, they are killing our children".
"I know people would ask for that, but that's just not the case when you're working in that capacity", he said.
When asked for her reaction to the autopsy results, the 61-year-old grandmother said she was not surprised.
