The front page photograph, taken by the Union Tribune's Hayne Palmour IV, captures protester Ebonay Lee as she "holds up her fist toward a line of Sheriff's deputies as she and other people protesting Tuesday's police shooting of a black man confront the deputies under the Highway 67 bridge on Broadway in El Cajon on Wednesday." Alfred Olango, an unarmed, mentally ill black man, was fatally shot by police in El Cajon on Tuesday afternoon, sparking two nights of protests. Olango's death comes on the heels of the police shootings of two other black men in separate incidents in Oklahoma and North Carolina this month.
