A demonstration protesting police brutality is turning into a violent confrontation in Paris on Tuesday night, the second consecutive day of protests after police officers shot dead a Chinese man at his home Sunday.
Demonstrators, who were from the Asian community, had gathered in the multicultural 19th district on the French capital's northeastern edge, police official Agnes Thibault Lecuivre said.
Police said that officers from the anti-crime brigade arrived at Liu's home on Sunday night after receiving a call from a neighbor to deal with a dispute between the man and his family, according to Le Monde.
France's foreign ministry responded that the safety of Chinese people in the country was a high national priority. She says since a lot of Chinese expats don't speak French well, it's hard for them to explain when reporting crimes, and that they feel the police aren't very welcoming or helpful to them. The situation soon escalated as demonstrators broke down barricades, threw projectiles and set fire to a auto.
The ethnic Chinese community regularly accuses police of not doing more to protect them against racism.
Liu's family, and a lawyer, dispute that account.
A police colleague then opened fire, killing the Chinese man, authorities say.
The killing of a Chinese national by police in Paris has sparked outrage among the ethnic Chinese community and protests continued on Tuesday after earlier protests turned violent.

This story has been corrected to show that it was a different officer who fired at man, not one claiming self-defense.
Lui says the Chinese population frequently feels like police response comes very late and that victims wait a long time.
