REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – Another officer involved shooting, this time in Southern California and a Filipino was involved.
Vigils and fundraisers are being held for Carson, Calif. resident Mharloun Saycon who was shot and killed by Long Beach police at a local casino last week.
Saycon was reportedly waving a knife and disrupting business at the casino. Police claim that Saycon would not drop the knife when ordered.
Police say they were trying to subdue him through less lethal methods but to no avail.
