A second case of deadly police-involved shooting is reported in Anaheim over the weekend. It comes just a day after police shot a 24-year-old man, sparking chaotic protests.
Police shot dead a handcuffed man in the Guinida neighborhood of the city, reports OC Weekly, citing eyewitness accounts.
Family friends told the Weekly that the victim was Joel Acevedo, a resident of Anaheim.
Residents on the scene allegedly tried to take photos from a second floor of an apartment block, but police obscured their view with flash lights. The second alleged killing took place a few blocks away from the place where 24-year-old Manuel Diaz was gunned down by police on Saturday.

The second alleged killing took place a few blocks from where 24-year-old Manuel Diaz was gunned down by police on Saturday. In the wake of Diaz’s death, roughly 200 people gathered to protest police brutality and pelted cops with bottles.
Police attempted to break up the crowds firing beanbag rounds and tear gas. A shocking video of the riot shows women and children amongst the panicking demonstrator, fleeing for cover.
Footage shows a police dog slipping from an officer’s hand and taking down one of the protesters and biting his arm before being brought under control.
“They just released the dog, and I had my baby and my stroller,” resident Susan Lopez told local television channel KCAL.
Demonstrations have raged in Anaheim since Saturday afternoon when Diaz died of his wounds after being shot by cops.
On Sunday enraged protesters stormed the local police station amid chants of “no justice, no peace” and “cops, pigs, murderers.”
