Pierce student’s death protested by family, friends

Family and friends of 22-year-old Pierce College student Josue Fuentes gathered in Van Nuys on Saturday, Nov. 15, to protest his fatal shooting, according to KTLA.

Fuentes was shot and killed near Victory Boulevard and Haskell Avenue on Nov. 10, around 3:15 p.m., after police responded to a call about a man with a knife who was cutting himself, according to the LA Daily News.

People at the gathering held signs that read “your job is to protect not to kill,” and “you think you have the authority to kill a minority,” according to KTLA pictures.
