ANAHEIM, California (Reuters) – Police in the southern Californian city of Anaheim made 24 arrests overnight when violence broke out at a protest by more than 600 people over the police shooting of an apparently unarmed man.
A half-dozen storefronts were smashed in a working-class neighborhood surrounding City Hall in what was the second major clash between police and demonstrators since an officer shot dead a suspected gang member in Anaheim on Saturday afternoon.
Dozens of officers wielding night sticks faced off against the demonstrators, who at one point threw water bottles and rocks towards the police line.
Some protesters threw patio chairs through the windows of a Starbucks, according to a Reuters witness. At least five other businesses had windows smashed.
Twenty adults and four juveniles were arrested on Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, Anaheim Police Sergeant Mike Bustamante said.
