A death which once again revives the controversy around police violence against African-Americans in the United States.

 

This is a new video that is touring social networks this Monday in the United States. We see a black man being shot eleven times by the police.

 

The incident took place at a gas station in Lafayette, Louisiana. According to information from our colleagues at TMZ, the security forces were called in for "unrest". Half a dozen police arrived at the scene. According to a witness, the man had a knife in his hand. The agents then order him to finish but the man does nothing. The woman who filmed the scene assures us that a police officer hit the man but that he was still standing.

 

As the man moved closer and closer to the station door, police fired 7 shots. Louisiana State Police spokesperson said the man was involved in an altercation and that police were already following him before the incident.
