Once again another fatal police shooting on day 244 of 2020 Monday Aug 31, 2020.

From the Los Angeles Times:

Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies on Monday shot and killed a Black man in an incident that is sparking concern and outrage in the South Los Angeles neighborhood of Westmont.

Authorities said the shooting occurred at the end of a pursuit and after the man allegedly struck one of the deputies.

Hours after the shooting, a crowd gathered at the scene and demanded answers. There were chants of “Say his name,” “No justice, no peace” and “Black lives matter.” Some said they didn’t think the shooting was justified. After midnight Monday night, more than 100 protesters marched to the Sheriff’s station on Imperial Highway, where the demonstration continued.
