After the shooting of an unarmed man in Anaheim on Saturday caused people to flood the streets in protest, NBC Los Angeles reports that a second man was killed at the hands of officers in the same area on Sunday.

The man, who hasn't been identified, reportedly shot at officers before they shot at him, which, if true, is in contrast to the killing of Manuel Diaz on Saturday, who was found to be unarmed after he was fatally wounded.

Sunday's shooting happened after cops tried to pull an SUV over in the 400 block of West Guinida Lane, according to KTLA. The driver lost control of the car and crashed it into a curb, then two men and one woman hopped out and tried to flee the scene. Officers say that at that point, one man opened fire so they fired back, killing him on the spot.
