SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Angry demonstrations continued Wednesday stemming from the death of 30-year-old Uganda native Alfred Olango began Tuesday afternoon, shortly after he was mortally wounded during a confrontation with officers outside a fast-food restaurant near the intersection of Interstate 8 and state Route 67.
On Wednesday night demonstrators gathered at the scene of the shooting in El Cajon to pray.
Early this afternoon, the demonstrators noisily paraded through town to the area where the deadly encounter had played out less than 24 hours earlier. For a time, the throng blocked the intersection of Broadway and Mollison Avenue and faced off with a row of officers in riot gear.
According to friends, Olango was born in Kampala, Uganda, as one of nine children. His mother and siblings emigrated to New York as refugees in 1991, apparently because his father -- who worked for the Ugandan president -- made threats of violence against them.
The family eventually moved to Southern California, and Olango attended San Diego High School for a time before dropping out, though he later earned a GED. According to his Facebook page, he also studied at San Diego Mesa College and worked as a cook at a Hooters restaurant.
