Police shooting of street artist sparks violent protests in Chile

PANGUIPULLI, CHILE -- Hundreds protested and a public building was burned down in a southern Chilean town Friday in reaction to the fatal police shooting of a street artist.

The incident took place in Panguipulli after the juggler refused to cooperate with a police search by two uniformed men.

The check resulted in a dispute that ended with one of the agents firing at the street artist, according to a video widely circulated by local channels and on social media.
