There was another police shooting last night that left a young man dead. But this time there’s video.
The video doesn’t show the moment when a police officer killed the man. But it clearly shows the man pointing a gun at the police.
People didn’t wait for the details, the Associated Press says.
Orlando Brown, 36, of nearby St. Charles was among the protesters. He said he didn’t have all the details about the shooting but said he wondered if it was a case of police aggression.
“I understand police officers have a job and have an obligation to go home to their families at the end of the night,” he said. “But do you have to treat every situation with lethal force? … It’s not a racial issue, or black or white. It’s wrong or right.”
