Protests erupt after police shoot woman near Yale University

Protests erupted for the fourth straight night Friday in New Haven, Connecticut, after police opened fire on a car near the Yale University campus, shooting and wounding a woman inside.

Stephanie Washington, 22, was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries following the shooting by an officer from Yale and another from the adjacent town of Hamden, university officials said in a statement.

"No weapons were observed at the scene," Connecticut State Police Sgt. Dwight Washington said in a statement.

"This is not just a Hamden situation or a New Haven situation," demonstrator Remidy Shareef of Hamden told NBC Connecticut Friday night. "This situation is the culture of policing throughout America."

Black Lives Matter of New Haven planned another demonstration Sunday afternoon. On its Facebook page, the group call New Haven, Hamden and Yale police a "triple occupation" of the community.

The shooting occurred after 4:15 a.m. Tuesday when Hamden police Officer Devin Eaton and Yale police Officer Terrance Pollack, responding to a report of an attempted robbery at a gas station, stopped a red car near campus fitting the description of the suspect's vehicle, Yale officials said.

1. As a resident of New Haven, this makes me very sad.

I love my city. It is the cultural capital of CT and offers many cultural delights from museums to theatre to great restaurants. I wouldn't live anywhere else...
