GREEN BAY (WLUK) --People are being asked to gather Friday evening on Green Bay's City Deck to remember a Green Bay man shot to death by a police officer two weeks ago.

Jonathon C. Tubby was arrested October 19 during a traffic stop, after officers found out he and another woman had outstanding warrants for their arrest, according to Green Bay police chief Andrew Smith.

Following his arrest, a confrontation started in the Brown County Jail's sally port, where individuals are brought in to be booked into the jail.

The confrontation turned deadly after an officer shot Tubby.

While the State Department is currently investigating the shooting, two officers were briefly placed on administrative leave.

Green Bay Police Captain Kevin Warych said both of those officers involved in the shooting are back to work today.

Per standard protocol, they are on administrative duty.

Smith says the department will keep it's distance during tonight's rally.

Chief Smith expects everything will stay peaceful, but he'll have a police captain on staff just in case.

"Our plan for tonight is to be very low key. We fully support people’s right to peacefully assemble in public places we want to make sure everybody has the right to do that we don’t want to interfere with it in any way," said Chief Smith. "At the very most we would have somebody nearby monitoring in case somebody needs something from us or some type of emergency happens."

Those rallying want details and footage of the incident released in a timely matter.

FOX 11 reached out the the Department of Justice for a specific timeline of the investigation but didn't hear back.

The latest details were released on October 26, 2018.
