Policemen in Los Angeles have shot a man thirty three times after he refused to drop a gun he was holding on to.
The black man who was shot has been identified as 28 year old Nicholas Robertson. Public protest has begun over why policemen continued to shoot Robertson even after he had fallen to the ground.
Robertson reportedly walked towards a filling station and fired off seven shots before deputies spotted him and asked him to drop the gun. The two deputies are shown on video shooting at Robertson after he had fallen to the ground.
It is unclear whether the two deputies involved are white.
