Yesterday, Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies shot and killed an African American following a physical confrontation with one of the officers. 


According to L.A county’s coroner, the victim’s name was Dijon Kizze. Officials stated that Kizze, 29, struck one of the deputies in the face. Seconds later, Kizze dropped his pistol on the concrete leading to the deputy and his partner to draw their guns, opening fire. 


The situation that led up to the dilemma was that Kizze broke vehicle code violations by riding his bicycle on Budlong Avenue during the evening time. 


When the police officers persuaded the young man, he led them on a foot chase. The deputies caught up with the suspect, and Kizzie threw a punch one of the officers, according to the reports made by Sherriff Lt. Brandon Dean. 


Although the sheriff stated he was unaware of the number of shots that were fired at Kizzie, the murder was witnessed by numerous spectators – leading to a large gathering of protestors marching in front of the L.A county’s sheriff's office.
