Protesters clashed with sheriff’s deputies on September 8, as they gathered for a fourth night near the South Los Angeles Sheriff’s Station to demand justice in the police shooting of Dijon Kizzee.
Police declared an unlawful assembly at approximately 8 pm, the Los Angeles Times said, before using non-lethal rounds to scatter the crowd.
Lt Glenn Emery told the Los Angeles Times that objects including pipes and pieces of concrete were thrown at deputies. Seventeen arrests were made, he said.
Dijon Kizzee was killed on August 31. The LA County Sheriff’s Office said there was “a fight … between the suspect and deputies” during which “the suspect produced a handgun,” leading to the shooting. Credit: Jessica Raye Rogers via Storyful
