Don and Tina Godawa say they want answers in their sons June death, and the Elsmere Police Department isn't giving them any.
Police say Michael Godawa got into a struggle with Officer David Byrd outside the Finish Line Bar and Grill on Dixie Highway in Elsmere.
Byrd, a bike patrol officer, was investigating Godawa for a possible DUI, according to police. They say Godawa tried to flee the scene, hitting Byrd with his car. That's when the officer fired one shot. Godawa tried to flee again, striking a utility pole.
Godawa's parents say there was no reason for the officer to shoot him. They're arguing police have blocked their efforts to get more information on the case.
