4 p.m.

A civilian oversight board has found Los Angeles police officers acted within policy in the fatal shooting of an 18-year-old man that sparked several Black Lives Matter protests.

The Los Angeles Police Commission issued its decision Tuesday in the October 2016 shooting of Carnell Snell Jr. in South Los Angeles.

While the commissioners found the use of deadly force was in line with department policy, they faulted the tactics used by the officers.

Police said Snell was shot and killed after officers stopped a suspected stolen car and he fled with a gun.

Police later took the unusual step of publicly disclosing video showing Snell holding the gun.

A police spokesman said three people who protested at Tuesday's meeting were arrested on suspicion of obstructing a public officer.
