NC march protesting teen's death turns destructive
Durham police say two teenagers face charges after protesters damaged police department headquarters during a demonstration against official refusal to explain why a teenager was shot to death in the back of a patrol car.
Durham police said Saturday that a 19-year-old and a 14-year-old were charged in the Friday night violence that several media organizations said resulted in broken windows.
About 200 people marched to Durham's downtown police headquarters Friday hours after Chief Jose Lopez said he could not explain while state investigators looked into the case why 17-year-old Jesus Huerta died. Lopez said it could be months before the State Bureau of Investigation's findings become public.
A 911 recording says Huerta was shot while in a cruiser with Officer Samuel Duncan in the police headquarters's parking lot early Tuesday.
