The family and friends of a Los Angeles man shot to death by police last weekend said Friday that officers fired on the 26-year-old while he was kneeling on the ground with his hands on his head. Freddy Santana was urinating in bushes by a house in his Exposition Park neighborhood when officers ordered him at gunpoint to step into a clearing and drop to the ground, said Isaac Vega. Vega said he watched the confrontation from inside his van parked across the street.
