» Protesters gathered near 109th Place and Budlong Avenue in South L.A.’s Westmont neighborhood Monday night after L.A. Sheriff’s deputies shot and killed an as-yet-unidentified citizen, described only as a Black man in his 30s. A sheriff’s department spokesman told reporters that the man was “riding his bicycle in violation of vehicle codes,” and then punched an officer when they attempted to chase him. Neighbors reported hearing as many as ten gunshots. “It’s like it’s open season,” one neighbor told the L.A. Times. [Los Angeles Times] [NBC Los Angeles]
