NEW YORK — Tensions have flared during a protest in New York City over the fatal police shooting of an unarmed black man in Sacramento, California.
Hundreds of people took to the streets Wednesday night, chanting and carrying signs as they marched from Columbus Circle to Times Square.
Police say at least 11 people were detained. It was not immediately clear what charges they could face.
At one point, police say, a bottle was thrown at an officer. They have not said whether that officer was injured.
People were protesting the death of 22-year-old Stephon Clark.
Two Sacramento police officers responding to a report of someone breaking car windows fatally shot Clark in his grandmother’s backyard on March 18. Police say they thought Clark was holding a gun, but he was found with only a cellphone.AlertMe
