Hundreds Gather For Police Protest In South LA

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — A large group of protesters gathered at the intersection of Western Ave and 108th street on Sunday night in order to protest the latest police shooting in Los Angeles.

The protest occurs one day after the death of 18-year-old Carnell Snell Jr. just a block away from the site of the protest.

People at the protest eventually started to vandalize nearby businesses, and one person even performed donuts on the street with their vehicles.

Other people were seen attempting to stop the vandalism.

This protest allegedly comes after a candlelight vigil was held nearby for Snell Jr.

As of 9:30 p.m. the protest fizzled out as only a small group of people were able to be seen from our chopper.

Police and several patrol cars remained at the scene.
