Allegations of Witness Pressuring in L.A. County Sheriff's Deputy Shooting

The family of an unarmed man shot by Los Angeles County Sheriff's Deputies earlier this month claims police investigators pressured a witness to make the shooting seem justified. Inglewood resident Jose de la Trinidad was shot by Sheriff's Deputies in Compton on Nov. 10 after police say he raised his hands to his waist. But, according to the family's attorney, a witness says he had his hands up near his head for a few seconds before he was shot. Pacifica's Dan Fritz reports from Los Angeles.
