Dozens of protesters came out Friday night to demonstrate against police shootings of blacks in Southern California the night before.
Protesters in San Bernardino marched down a street, blocking traffic at a crossroads near where the man was shot. They shouted slogans such as “Remove the police!” And “F — the police!” According to social media videos.
A video from a mobile phone, taken by a bystander, captured part of the shooting in which an officer shot and killed a suspect who police said pulled a gun from his pocket on Thursday.
Police have identified the man shot as Mark Matthew Bender Jr., a 35-year-old San Bernardino resident. They said his extensive rap list included an arrest for attempted murder.
