Wisconsin man fatally shot by police in traffic stop

Baton Rouge, La. (AP) – Community volunteers have turned out to clean up after violent protests ransacked a north Milwaukee neighborhood following a police shooting.

Two to three dozen people are sweeping and picking up debris Sunday morning around a BP gas station that was burned and largely destroyed near the intersection at the center of the violence Saturday night.

Darlene Rose, who is 31, says she understands the anger that sparked the protests but that violence won’t solve anything.

The unrest broke out hours after an officer shot a man who police say fled a traffic stop. Police say the man was armed, but it wasn’t clear if he pointed a gun at or shot at the officer. The races of the man and officer haven’t been released.
