Police shooting of 13-year-old provokes protests


October 31, 2013 by socialaction2014

More than a thousand people gathered this week in Santa Rosa, Calif. to protest the death of a 13-year-old boy after a county sheriff shot and killed him. Police say Andy Lopez was carrying a pellet gun that looked like an AK-47 when they confronted him. Witnesses say they heard the sheriff’s deputies order Lopez to put down the gun twice. One of the deputies, Erick Gelhaus, opened fire when Lopez turned around, shooting the boy seven times. Ameera David talks to RT’s Ramon Galindo about the controversy surrounding the shooting incident.
