Long Beach Man Shot by Police on Life Support

A 22 year-old Long Beach man shot by police last week has been put on life support. Sokha Hor's family says they haven't been able to see the young man who is clinging to life at a local hospital. They're protesting what they call LBPD's lack of compassion and insensitivity. Hor is a member of Long Beach's Cambodian-American community that is calling on police to give the family news of their loved one. Hor's girlfriend, who was an eyewitness to the shooting, says Hor was unarmed and shouldn't have been shot. KPFK reporter Jasmine Broderick has more.
