Hundreds of people marched through the streets of El Cajon, Calif., on Wednesday night, protesting the police shooting of an unarmed black man on Tuesday.
A 911 caller had reported that her brother was acting erratically and walking into traffic. She told police that he was mentally ill and unarmed, Andrew Bowen of member station KPBS reports.
It took nearly an hour for police to arrive on the scene. About a minute after they arrived, one of them shot Andrew Olango, The Associated Press reports.
Police say Olango did not have a weapon, but was in a "shooting stance" pointing a vape at officers, an account witnesses dispute.
