BREAKING: Cars Burn in Paris as Migrant Communities Protest Police Shooting. Media Silent!
Riots have broken out in Paris with cars burned and property damaged after a man said to be of Chinese extraction was shot by police in his home.
Cars were set alight in Paris’ 19th district Monday evening after 56-year-old Shaoyo Liu died following a police raid after a domestic disturbance call. Mr Liu was reportedly armed with a pair of scissors, causing police to open fire and kill him, Le Figaro reports.
A crowd of between 150 and 200 people took to the streets to protest the police’s actions, most of them from Paris’ Chinese community. Journalist Rémy Buisine was able to shoot footage of police clashing with the protesters earlier this evening and posted the video on his Twitter account.
