Community marches over fatal police shooting in Spring Valley

Members of Spring Valley's Haitian community marched today demanding answers in the shooting death of Haitian immigrant Herve Gilles on Wednesday morning.

Police say Gilles, 48, was drunk and attacked an officer, forcing the officer to shoot and kill him.

Protesters marched down North Main Street to the spot where Gilles was killed.

Those protesting wanted to know why Gilles wasn't shot with a stun gun instead or why the officer fired a second shot.
