China Daily (USA) - - ACROSS AMERICA - REUTERS / PA­TRICK T. FAL­LON

A makeshift memo­rial for Al­fred Olango, 38, who was shot by El Ca­jon, Cal­i­for­nia, po­lice on Tues­day, is seen at the park­ing lot where he was shot on Thurs­day. His mother said on Thurs­day that her son was hav­ing a men­tal break­down when he was con­fronted by po­lice, and they should have helped him in­stead of quickly open­ing fire. Within two min­utes of po­lice ar­riv­ing, Olango was shot to death af­ter he pointed an ob­ject that turned out to be an elec­tronic cig­a­rette at po­lice, au­thor­i­ties said.
