Police in Los Angeles used non-lethal rounds to clear a group of people protesting the police shooting of Dijon Kizzee on September 7.
Video shows police firing at the ground as people carry a large box or crate towards them, across a highway from the South Los Angeles Sheriff’s Station.
Flash bangs can then be heard as the protesters run.
The LA County Sheriff’s Department said they supported the community “wanting to protest, to peacefully exercise their 1st Amendment rights,” but said they were “concerned there are individuals from outside of the community, and state, wanting to incite riots.”
Those individuals, they said, had “already committed acts of vandalism, looting & assaults utilizing rocks, pipes & mortars.” Credit: @activistandy via Storyful
