The Interdenominational Ministerial Association, representing churches mostly in northwest Lakeland, held a news conference this morning to ask for calm as a police-involved shooting is investigated. The group asks that those who witnessed the incident cooperate with police. Lakeland police officers shot and killed a 17-year-old Winter Haven teen they say was trying to run them over and endangering others gathered in a parking lot at Florida and Memorial around 2:30 a.m. Wednesday.
