The San Diego Urban League is deeply saddened by the tragic death of a young black man who was shot and killed by an El Cajon Police Officer. We are concerned greatly to find that the victim’s sister is quoted as saying that she called the police for help.  We are alarmed at the number of black males who recently have been shot by the law enforcement and have greater concern knowing that this tragedy can happen in our local community.
