Protesters gather along Broadway Avenue to protest the fatal shooting of an unarmed black man on Tuesday by officers in El CajonBy Dan Whitcomb SAN DIEGO (Reuters) - The mother of an unarmed black man shot to death in Southern California said on Thursday her son was having a mental breakdown when he was confronted by police and they should have helped him instead of quickly opening fire. Within two minutes of police arriving, Alfred Olango, 38, was shot to death in the San Diego suburb of El Cajon on Tuesday after he pointed an object that turned out to be an electronic cigarette at police, authorities said. It is the latest in a string of shootings of mostly unarmed black men by white police officers in the United States that have led to sometimes violent protests.

(Olango Family via AP)EL CAJON, Calif. (AP) — The mother of an unarmed black man shot to death in a confrontation with police in a San Diego suburb this week called for peaceful protests Thursday and said her son did not deserve to die.
