(Graphic Video) Deadly Shooting Sparks Protests

July 6, 2016

A deadly police shooting in Louisiana is sparking protests.

 

Alton Sterling was shot in Baton Rogue early yesterday morning after officers responded to a report of a black man selling CDs threatening someone with a gun.  Cellphone video of the shooting was posted online showing officers tackling and holding the 37-year-old Sterling to the ground with a gun aimed at his head before five shots are heard.  

Sterling was pronounced dead from several gunshots to the chest and back.  A witness told "The Advocate" that an officer pulled a gun from Sterling's pocket after the shooting.  Protesters took to the streets of the Louisiana capital last night outside the store where Sterling was shot.
