Activists challenge police over officer-involved shooting of black man in Venice

VENICE, Calif. (KABC) -- Dozens of people were expected to challenge police Tuesday over an officer-involved shooting of a black man in Venice.

The shooting happened last week.

Police said the man had a three-foot plank of wood and refused to listen to officers who were called out to help calm him down.
