El Cajon Police Shooting Protests Begin
In a Facebook live stream of the shooting’s aftermath, a woman wearing hospital scrubs, who identified herself as the deceased man’s sister, said she had called the police to help her brother.
“Oh my God, you killed my brother!” she cried. “I just called for help, and you came and killed him. I called you guys to come help, not to kill my brother!”
Relatives have identified him to multiple news outlets, such as the New York Daily News as Alfred Olango.
According to what appears to be his Facebook page, Olango lived in San Diego and was a head cook at a Hooters restaurant. His page indicates he studied at San Diego Mesa College and San Diego High School and was originally from Gulu, Uganda.
The outrage exploded on social media the only place Americans seem to have any balls.
Witnesses claimed to local media that their phones were confiscated by police officers following the shooting.
The El Cajon Police Department encourages anyone that dares to call 619-579-3311 and let them know how you feel about all of these police killings.

Streets were shut down Wednesday in the East San Diego County city of El Cajon as protesters marched from the El Cajon Police Department to the scene of an officer-involved shooting that left a black man dead Tuesday.
The marchers chanted “Black Lives Matter” as they walked a mile-and-a-half-long route that took them under Interstate 8 to the 800 block of Broadway.
According to a report from the San Diego Union-Tribune, Christopher Rice-Wilson, associate director of the Alliance for San Diego, who joined demonstrators Wednesday, said: "Mr. Olange was killed for three strikes. His first strike was for being black. His second strike was being mentally ill. And his third strike was not following orders. How can you expect a man who can’t understand your orders to follow your orders?"
According to news reports, a crowd of demonstrators was also gathering near state Route 67.

Protesters are demanding to see a full video of the shooting, rather than a screenshot released by El Cajon police late Tuesday. The image shows a man with his arms clasped, pointed toward an officer who was pointing a gun back at him — with a second officer positioned to the right of the victim.
El Cajon Police Chief Jeff Davis said the still image was from a cellphone video taken by a witness as the shooting occurred.
Davis did not disclose what the object pointed at the officers was, but he did say a firearm was not located at the scene.
On Wednesday, San Diego County sheriff's deputies in riot gear formed a human barrier between demonstrators and El Cajon Police Department headquarters.
