People angry about APD's latest shooting are downtown voicing their concerns.

APD has received a lot of fallout since two of its officers shot a homeless man camping in the foothills two Sundays ago.

Police say James Boyd was threatening officers with knives and would not drop them.

Officers used both non-lethal and lethal force against Boyd. He was taken to the hospital and later died.

KOB Eyewitness News 4 will have more on the protest this evening. Stay with KOB for updates.
