ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Anaheim's mayor says federal officials have agreed to review two deadly police shootings after a fourth day of violent protests.
Mayor Tom Tait says he'll meet with members of the U.S. attorney's office and the FBI on Friday.
Authorities say as many as 1,000 demonstrators surged through downtown in the Southern California city Tuesday night, smashing windows on 20 businesses and setting trash fires. Police and patrol cars were pelted with rocks and bottles. Hundreds of police used batons, pepper balls and beanbag rounds.
Police say there were 24 arrests and at least five injuries to officers, media and demonstrators but none was serious.
