Below is the first part of an article by Rita Daniels from kunm.org. It reads…

Just hours after Tuesday night’s protest of an officer-involved shooting, Albuquerque police opened fire on a man on Albuquerque’s Westside. The man, identified as Alfred “Lionel” Redwine, died Wednesday morning. Police say they were responding to a 911 call about a man pointing a gun at a child. No matter the circumstances, experts are saying citizens have reached a tipping point when it comes to police brutality.

Over 1,000 people took to the streets in Albuquerque Tuesday night to protest the fatal shooting of 38-year-old James Boyd, a homeless man said to have mental illness. Demonstrators were there to demand accountability from the Albuquerque Police Department.

The rally began with 23 seconds of silence in honor of all the people who had been killed by Albuquerque officers since 2010.

People then marched to police headquarters where officers observed from behind tinted windows.

A police video of the March 16th shooting showed Boyd gathering his belongings and turning away right before officers opened fire.
