Anaheim, Calif., mayor Tom Tait said Wednesday that the U.S. Attorney's Office and the FBI have agreed to review two weekend police shooting deaths that sparked violent protests in the Orange County city. On Tuesday night as many as 1,000 people took to the streets, setting fires and damaging City Hall, as they demonstrated against the shooting deaths of two men, including one, Manuel Diaz, who was unarmed. The police union issued a statement saying that both men who were killed by police were gang members with criminal records. Diaz' family is suing the city and the police department for $50 million, claiming that Diaz was shot while running away. At least six protesters were injured, and 24 have been arrested.
