US police shooting of Black man sparks protests

Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies fatally shot Dijon Kizzee, a 29-year-old Black man, in South LA.

Sheriff’s Lt. Brandon Dean told reporters that deputies caught up to the suspect a block away, when they approached him, he punched one of the deputies in the face.

It was at that point deputies “noticed that inside the clothing items he dropped was a black semiautomatic handgun,” and that’s when both deputies opened fire, Dean said.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene.
