A photo of Alfred Olango, who was shot by El Cajon police Tuesday, is seen at a makeshift memorial at the parking lot where he was shot in El Cajon, CaliforniaBy Patrick Fallon EL CAJON, Calif. (Reuters) - Authorities on Friday released two videos of police shooting an unarmed black man dead in El Cajon, California, but the grainy footage, much of it without sound, was not likely to pacify community outrage over the incident. Police and prosecutors said an investigation was still under way into the fatal shooting on Tuesday of Ugandan-born Alfred Olango, 38, and that no decision had been made on whether to criminally charge the officers involved. "This is as difficult a situation as any law enforcement officer will ever encounter and it's one we never seek," El Cajon Police Chief Jeff Davis told a news conference.

California has been at the forefront of the fast-growing autonomous vehicle industry, fueled by technology companies in Silicon Valley, and is one of a handful of states to have passed regulations enabling self-driving car testing on public roads.
