August 5, 2019

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — A protest of the fatal shooting of a robbery suspect by police in Colorado turned chaotic after two armed men showed up at the protest.

The men arrived on motorcycles and pulled out guns at Monday’s demonstration outside police headquarters. The Gazette reported that more than 30 people were fighting in the street. Police ran out and had the two men on the ground and in handcuffs very quickly. Police then asked protesters to leave the area.

Earlier, more than 60 people marched to the building to protest the killing. They entered the first of two sets of glass doors and chanted for justice as officers watched from inside the lobby.

Police say the suspect was shot after he ran and reached for a gun
