September 28, 2016 (El Cajon)—A shooting of a mentally ill African-American man by El Cajon Police yesterday has sparked anger among some community members, though police have released a photo suggesting the man assumed a “shooter’s stance” before he was shot and killed.
Following a press conference this morning by police, civil rights leaders spoke at a press conference calling for a federal investigation. Marches were held downtown and a candlelight vigil is planned tonight at 6 p.m. the El Cajon Police Station forAlfred Olango, 38.
