LA shooting

A graphic video of a police shooting on Skid Row in Los Angeles will be used in the investigation. That assurance from senior police officials.

There was a struggle yesterday afternoon between a homeless man known on the streets as "Africa". 4 police officers tussled with the man. LA Police contend that he grabbed for one of their guns. At least one officer tasered him but it didn't seem to do anything. It then appears that 3 officers all fired their service weapons and killed him.

Witnesses say that this homeless man had been living in a tent on Skid Rowe for a few months after spending a long period of time in a mental health facility.

You can see the video on our website: newstalk1010-dot-com..but keep in the mind, it is graphic.
