The travel and tourism industry in California is concerned. Walking the famous Hollywood Walk of Fame in Los Angeles, California visitors to Hollywood became witness of another police shooting in the United States.
The shooting closed down the intersection of Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Avenue, one of the busiest tourist spots in Hollywood.
This may result in new protests in Los Angeles. LAPD police officers shot a man adding another killing to a recent and climbing toll.
Police officers attended one of the most crowded intersections in the city on Friday night, after reports of a man with a knife on Hollywood Boulevard. A man was subsequently shot dead. Some bystanders captured video and pictures of what appeared to be a white man slumped in the road, surrounded by a group of officers with pistols drawn.
The weapon the man was reported to have been brandishing appeared to have been a small Swiss Army-style pocket knife, according to pictures posted by police on social media that showed a numbered crime scene label next to the object.
