Calls for calm after a video of a black man riddled with bullets by the police in the United States

Jayland Walker, 25, was killed on Monday as he fled police on foot after a car chase following an attempted arrest for a traffic violation. A very violent video released by the police on Sunday shows the young man riddled with bullets.

A new demonstration, at the call of anti-racist associations, was scheduled for 2:30 p.m. local time (6:30 p.m. GMT) in this city near Cleveland, to demand “justice for Jayland Walker”.

“Many will want to air their grievances in public and I fully support our residents’ right to peaceful assembly,” said city mayor Dan Horrigan, saying he was “heartbroken.” “But I hope people will agree that violence and destruction are not the solution,” he said at a press conference.
