Protestors demand transparency from cambridge police following fatal shooting
On the evening of Feb. 13., protestors demonstrated in the memory of Sayed Faisal, a 20-year old UMass Boston student who was fatally shot by Cambridge police in Cambridgeport on Jan. 4.
According to police, Faisal was carrying a knife and moved towards officers, leading to non-lethal bean bag rounds being fired prior to the deadly shots. Police have not released the name of the officer who fired the shots. One officer, however, has been put on administrative leave.
Protestors have demanded that officers involved in the death of Faisal be named, fired, and prosecuted.
