ANAHEIM, Calif. – Demonstrators stormed a police department in Orange County, Calif., on Sunday to protest an officer-involved shooting that left a man dead and led to a violent clash between witnesses and police.
A crowd filled the Anaheim Police headquarters lobby Sunday as Chief John Welter prepared to hold a news conference.
Protesters chanted no justice, no peace and cops, pigs, murderers as officers stood by and watched, according to the Orange County Register.
Welter was to address the shooting and confrontation Saturday in which a crowd threw bottles at officers who responded with tear gas and beanbag rounds.
The man was shot in front of an apartment complex around 4 p.m. Saturday following a foot chase, Dunn said. He died three hours later at a hospital.
Tribal war shirt goes for nearly $900,000
A war shirt worn by Chief Joseph of the Nez Pierce tribe that can be seen in a painting hanging in the Smithsonian Institution sold Saturday for $877,500 at auction in Reno, Nev., organizers said.
Mike Overby, an organizer of the annual Coeur dAlene Art Auction, said the shirt that sold in Reno is considered to be one of the most important Native American artifacts to ever come to auction. It had been expected to bring from $800,000 to $1.2 million at auction, he said.
Anything associated with Chief Joseph is highly desirable, and thats a pretty special shirt, he told The Associated Press.
Chief Joseph wore the shirt in 1877 in the earliest known photo of him, and again while posing for a portrait by Cyrenius Hall in 1878. That painting, which was used for a U.S. postage stamp, hangs in the Smithsonian.
Mexicans march to protest president
Thousands marched through Mexico Citys center to protest what they called the imposition of the candidate of the old ruling party as the countrys new president.
Protesters carried signs accusing presumed President-elect Enrique Pena Nieto of electoral fraud and Mexico television giant Televisa of being a factory of lies. Opponents say Pena Nietos party, the Institutional Revolutionary Party, won the July 1 election through vote-buying and overspending, including paying major media outlets such as Televisa for favorable coverage.
Mexico didnt vote for fraud. Mexico wants a country that is honest and democratic, said marcher Marlem Munoz. What happened in the elections was a total mockery directed at the Mexican people.
Woman’s ex charged with killing couple
A 39-year-old house guest has been charged in Allen Park, Mich., with murder, accused of killing his ex-girlfriend and her new partner whod been hosting him, dismembering their bodies and dumping them in a river.
