A homeless man shot by police in Los Angeles was a French national and convicted criminal, the LA Times reported Tuesday, as protesters continued to voice anger at the killing. The newspaper identified the man, killed Sunday after a struggle with police caught on a video which went viral, as 39-year-old Charley Saturmin Robinet. It cited law enforcement records as saying Robinet -- identified by others on LA's Skid Row homeless district only as "Africa" -- was convicted of armed robbery 15 years ago and jailed. LA police chief Charlie Beck said Monday that the victim, who police have not identified, tried to grab a gun from one of four officers who were trying to restrain him on the city's Skid Row homeless district.
