Hundreds protest over Calif. police shootings
Amid raucous protests, officials in Anaheim call for federal probe of deadly police shootings
By The Associated Press

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) ¯¯¯ Anaheim city officials have agreed to ask the U.S. attorney's office to investigate recent police shootings.

Tuesday's move comes amid raucous protests over two deadly police shootings over the weekend, including one of an unarmed man running from officers.

Police stepped up patrols and some donned riot gears outside the doors of City Hall's council chamber as hundreds demonstrated on the street.



The shooting of Manuel Diaz has sparked four nights of protests. On Saturday, angry demonstrators hurled rocks and bottles at officers who were securing the scene for investigators, and police responded by firing bean bags and pepper balls at the crowd.

The city council wants federal investigators to also look into police response to the protests.
