Public confronts El Cajon City Council over deadly police shooting

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Protesters demanded answers Tuesday in the death of Alfred Olango as the investigation continues. 

Olango's death at the hands of police sparked widespread and nearly immediate protests.
   
A witness to the shooting told reporters that Olango had his hands raised when shot, and another indicated he may have had a seizure.

Police officials countered that Olango was uncooperative, repeatedly refused to remove his hand from his pocket, assumed "what appeared to be a shooting stance'' and pointed an object that turned out to be an electronic smoking device at one of the officers.

Last Saturday, Olango was laid to rest.
