[Video] Los Angeles: Hundreds protest over recent fatal Skid Row police shooting

News Los Angeles, United States - 07 March 2015

Hundreds protested in Downtown Los Angeles to speak out against the fatal police shooting of a homeless man on Skid Row and the overall issue of officer-involved shootings on March 7, 2015. 

KTLA reports around 200 people eventually gathered in the intersection of Spring Street and Fifth Street 

The 'die-in' was in response to the death of a man called Africa, who was shot during a struggle with officers near his tent on Los Angeles' Skid Row on March 1, 2015. The LAPD is claiming the man reached for an officer's gun prior to being shot.
