People have been gathering in good number at the Triple S Food Mart to show solidarity for Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge who was shot dead by Baton Rouge Police at the food mart on Tuesday (July 5).
According to reports:
Sterling was selling CDs outside a Baton Rouge convenience store early Tuesday morning when the police responded to a 911 call that Sterling had threatened the 911 caller with a gun.
Fox News says: In his last few seconds of life, Alton Sterling seemed completely immobile. Two Baton Rouge, Louisiana, police officers had pinned him to the floor, flat on his back. But even as Sterling seemed completely unable to move, one of the police officers yelled, “He’s got a gun!” Within seconds, an officer shot Sterling, who was still pinned to the ground by the cops. Sterling died of multiple gunshot wounds, according to an autopsy.
Soon afterward a witness released video of the shooting online and people all round the world have been voicing their anger on social media.
