Police Shooting Puts Spotlight on Pasco, Washington A cell-phone video shows three police officers in Pasco, Washington, shooting and killing an unarmed Latino who turned on them after running away. He's apparently been throwing rocks at them. It's been condemned by the President of Mexico, and officials say local protests have demonstrated there is anger bubbling below the surface. The shooting was last week, and the video has spread around the Internet, showing 35-year old Antonio Zambrano-Montes being gunned down on an otherwise empty sidewalk. It's the third incident of its kind since July in Pasco, Washington. Anna King reports for the Northwest News Network .
