Another young Black man killed by police (Vancouver, WA)

You have to read down 1/2 way through the article through the article to find out that he was Black, apparently unarmed, and that “roughly 25 officers wielding guns and/or riot shields” murdered him. He was the boyfriend of a close friend's daughter (she's 20 years old).

"...there was a Black man in the parking lot, “just hopping around, looking worried.” Officers pulled up and exited their cars with guns drawn and quickly fired.

“And all of a sudden we just start hearing ‘pop pop pop pop,’” he said. “We didn’t understand how fast it happened.”

The man who was shot “looked really scared” as police arrived. The man appeared to have his hands in his pockets, and the shooting felt nearly “instantaneous."


I don't have any details on what may have caused so many police to show up in riot gear, but a lone man in a parking lot being met by 25 police in riot gear seems cause for scrutiny, and not just an internal police investigation.
