This Video Of The Death Of Alton Sterling Is One Of The Worst Things We’ve Ever Seen

A 37 year old man named Alton Sterling, was killed in the early hours of July 5th in Baton Rouge, LA after being shot by police.

Not much is known about the incident but someone did record the end of it.

The video is hard to watch. But we all must figure out what happened:

According to the Advocate, Sterling was selling CD’s in front of a convenience store when he got involved with “some type of altercation” with two police officers.

The situation then escalated to the point that Sterling was thrown to the ground and then shot by one officer “multiple” times.
