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.

The dash cam video then shows the police auto veer toward Dickson who appeared to be yelling before she's struck by the vehicle . Officer Kayla Johnson and Detective Ronnie Leatherman are the officers who fired their weapons at her.

The man attacked the officer with a knife "as soon as the door opened", injuring him, according to these sources.

China's foreign ministry has lodged an official complaint over the death of Shaoyo Liu, 56, at his home in the French capital, urging the authorities to protect the "rights and security" of Chinese citizens.

"Meanwhile, we hope that our citizens.in France can express their wishes and demands in a lawful and reasonable way", the spokeswoman added.

Chinese journalist in France Zhulin Zhang was also able to capture police dispersing the protestors using force who had gathered near the police station. They said he was holding scissors to scale fish, and was with his children.

Chinese immigrants and China's government are protesting a police killing in Paris that prompt.

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.
