Utah has declared a state of emergency following a night of protests in Salt Lake City. On Thursday, the Salt Lake County district attorney announced no officers would be charged in the killing of Bernardo Palacios-Carbajal, a 22-year-old man who was shot at more than 30 times as he fled police in May. On Thursday, protesters splashed red paint on the DA’s office and splattered red paint on the street outside. The man’s family now plans to sue the city.
