Anaheim, CA -- The police chief in Anaheim says two officers have been placed on leave after they were involved in the fatal shooting of an unarmed man that led to a violent clash between witnesses and police.
Protesters burst into the Anaheim Police headquarters' lobby Sunday as Chief John Welter held a news conference to discuss what happened the night before.
He said 24-year-old Manuel Diaz was shot in front of an apartment complex following a foot chase. He said what led one of the officers to shoot Diaz is under investigation.
The shooting sparked a melee in the neighborhood as some threw rocks and bottles at police. Officers fired rubber bullets and pepper spray to suppress the crowd.
Five people were arrested during the unrest.
