Community demands answers after teen was shot and killed by deputies

- The Sheriff Civilian Oversight Commission held a meeting to hear the community’s concerns over the shooting death of Anthony Weber, but things quickly got heated.

The community meeting came to an abrupt end when L.A. County Sheriff Captain Chris Bergner had this heated exchange with the brother of 16-year-old Anthony Weber.
 
The final blow to a community already reeling after Sunday’s shooting death of the teen at the hands of a sheriff’s deputy who fired 10 rounds killing Weber.  

Before Sunday’s fatal shooting,  pursuing deputies claim they saw a gun in Weber’s waistband, but no weapon was ever found. The deputies say, right after Weber was shot, a large crowd of people moved into the area and they believe someone picked up the gun.

LASD released the 9-1-1 call which appears to support their claim.
 
Despite the heavy protest, the Sheriff Civilian Oversight Commission says it is working to get answers for the community and the teen’s family who lashed out at officials.

The sheriff’s department is conducting a full investigation.

The deputy has been placed on paid leave pending the outcome of the investigation.
 
Weber, who was only 16, leaves behind a 9-month-old daughter.
