Police intervened on two men fighting, one carrying a weapon. Police shot the man. Soon afterwards a mob of anarchists arrived to protest. The anarchists were reported to have tried to break into the crime scene, steal a baton from police and throw objects at the police. It even made FoxNews. Here are some recaps.
PPB riot line move in & mace community members that have gathered outside the crime scene where a man was shot by PPB tonight. From my viewpoint, there was no escalation from the crowd that warranted this use of force. A few water bottles were thrown after they maced the crowd. pic.twitter.com/53iKxLLsLm
