Violent protests against police shooting of another Black American in Los Angeles
"The police kill another Black man, another Black person, we're tired of the injustice, we're tired of the police brutality," the protesters shouted. Black American Dijon Kizzee, 29, who was on a bicycle, was shot as he got off and tried to run away when he was asked to stop. Protesters asked why did the police shoot him when he was not holding a weapon.

LOS ANGELES, Sept 2: Protests continued on the second day on Tuesday against the shooting of a Black American by the police. Dijon Kizzee, 29, who was on a bicycle, was shot as he got off and tried to run away when he was asked to stop for "traffic code violation", on Monday afternoon.

The police said they caught up to the suspect about a block away and when they approached him he punched one of the deputies in the face and dropped a bundle of clothing which contained a firearm. It was then he was shot by one of the two cops.

Protesters on Tuesday marched to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's office from the scene of the shooting. Hundreds of people had held protests at the Sheriff's station on Monday also. Clashes with the police there and vandalism were also reported.

The official version of the incident is: "Our suspect was holding some items of clothing in his hands, punched one of the officers in the face and then dropped the items in his hands. The deputies noticed that inside the clothing items that he dropped was a black semiautomatic handgun, at which time a deputy-involved shooting occurred."

The Los Angeles Sheriff's Department announced on Tuesday that the two deputies involved in the shooting have been removed from duty pending an investigation.

"The police kill another Black man, another Black person, we're tired of the injustice, we're tired of the police brutality, we're tired of being looked upon as fourth-class citizens, we're tired of just not being treated equally," a protester told the CBS.

Protesters asked why did the police shoot him when he was not holding a weapon.

Meanwhile, another shooting that took place on June 18 in Gardena is under scrutiny. 18-year-old Andres Guardado was shot by a Los Angeles police. Guardado's parents have filed a lawsuit against Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department and the deputies. The FBI is also reviewing the case.
