Protests in Washington State Call for Justice for Kevin Peterson, a Black Man Killed by Police

HeadlineNov 03, 2020

Protests are continuing in Washington state over the police killing of 21-year-old Kevin Peterson Jr. in the city of Vancouver. Peterson was fatally shot by three Clark County sheriff’s deputies Thursday in a parking lot. According to reports, Peterson was sitting alone in his parked car when police approached. He got out and ran, though it’s still unclear what happened just prior to his fatal shooting. Over the weekend, anti-police brutality protesters were confronted by right-wing counterprotesters. At least seven people were arrested after a vigil Friday night. An independent investigation into Peterson’s killing is underway.
