Police responded to a demonstration in San Francisco’s Mission District this morning that may have been caused by Saturday afternoon’s officer-involved shooting.
An angry crowd gathered near 16th and Valencia streets shortly before 1 a.m. as police said they monitored the situation. Officers in riot helmets were in the area and police said officers were helping to facilitate the walking demonstration.
Bystanders said the crowd had gathered in response to Saturday’s shooting, when a 19-year-old man was fatally shot by police in the city’s Bayview neighborhood.
“They’re rioting because people are pissed,” one woman told Bay City News
According to IndyBay, “Tonight a march was held at midnight through the Mission District streets to protest the killing. No arrests were made.”
