A police shooting that left a man dead in Anaheim, California caused a violent clash as onlookers and witnesses began throwing bottles at the officers.
But the police didn't take to this lightly, responding by firing tear gas and bean bags at the crowd.
Yahoo News reports:
The man was shot in front of an apartment complex around 4 p.m. following a foot chase, Anaheim Sgt. Bob Dunn said. He died three hours later at a hospital.
As officers were investigating what happened at the scene, Dunn said an angry group of people began yelling and throwing bottles at them. He said that as officers detained several people, the crowd advanced on officers so they fired tear gas and beanbag rounds at them.
Video captured by a KCAL-TV crew showed a chaotic scene in which officers fired beanbag rounds as some people ducked to the ground while others scattered screaming. A man is seen yelling at an officer even as a weapon is pointed at him; two adults huddled to shield a boy and girl. Meanwhile, a police dog ran into several people sitting on the grass, including a woman and child in a stroller, before biting a man in the arm.
Anaheim's Sgt. Dunn says the man shot by police was one of three men who ran away from officers when they approached them in an alley.
It is still under investigation why the man was shot and killed however several people were arrested on the scene.
