ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — The mother of a man who was shot to death by Anaheim police has condemned violence that erupted during protests against the killing.
Genevieve Huizar pleaded Wednesday for a stop to the violence and says she doesn't want that to be her son's legacy.
Police say as many as 1,000 people surged through downtown Anaheim on Tuesday night, and 24 people were arrested after protesters smashed shop windows, set trash fires and attacked police with rocks and bottles.
It was the fourth day of violence in the wake of a Saturday police shooting that killed Huizar's son, Manuel Diaz, and Sunday's killing of another man.
Diaz's family has sued the city for $50 million. The U.S. attorney's office will review both killings.
