Protesters gather along Broadway Avenue to protest the fatal shooting of an unarmed black man on Tuesday by officers in El CajonA Southern California police officer who shot an unarmed black man pointing a vape smoking device had been at the scene for less than two minutes when he opened fire, in a killing that set off two nights of protests, a police official said on Thursday. The incident in the San Diego suburb of El Cajon came as racially charged anger over similar incidents in two other U.S. cities over the past two weeks had started to subside. El Cajon officer Richard Gonsalves and a colleague on the police force, whose name was not released, were responding to calls about a mentally unstable man walking in traffic, officials said.
