ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Authorities say a police shooting that left a man dead escalated into a violent clash with witnesses throwing bottles at officers who responded by firing beanbag rounds.
Police Sgt. Bob Dunn says an officer shot the man in front of an apartment Saturday following a foot chase. He later died at a hospital.
Dunn said that as police were investigating at the scene, an angry group of people confronted officers and began throwing bottles at them. He said that as officers detained several people, the crowd advanced on officers so they fired tear gas and beanbag rounds at them.
Witness video broadcast on KCAL-TV showed a chaotic scene as police tried to disperse the crowd.
Dunn said he didn't know what led to the shooting.
