Protests Erupt after Two Officer-Involved Shootings in Louisiana, Minnesota

Alton Sterling was shot and killed after police officers responded to a disturbance call early Tuesday morning and Philando Castile was shot during a traffic stop, which has resulted in Black Lives Matter protests [1] and the suspensions of the officers involved. A woman claiming to be Castile’s girlfriend livestreamed the end of the traffic stop from the car on Facebook Live [2], while a local convenience store worker took a video from his cellphone [3] during the fatal encounter between Sterling and two police officers.
