LOS ANGELES (AP) - A small group of people protesting a 2015 fatal police shooting continue to demonstrate at Los Angeles City Hall.

The group pitched a few tents and spent the night outside City Hall’s east entrance after the city Police Commission on Tuesday found the shooting of Redel Jones was within department policy.

Police say the woman matched the description of a robbery suspect and was shot after refusing to drop a large knife as she moved toward an officer.

Mayor Eric Garcetti and police Chief Charlie Beck are scheduled to be in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday for a meeting on criminal justice issues.
