live, this is kron4 news at 11:00. more than 30 protesters have been arrested in san francisco. smoke bombs thrown into a station, all of this after an angry demonstration. kron4's j.r. stone walked with the protesters tonight and actually got caught up with the crowd of people who were arrested. j.r., what sparked the trouble? >> well, really things took a turn for the worst i guess you could say in one sense when police said enough is enough, these protesters have marched street after street for several hours. they said no more and they said no more directly behind me right here. that was where they made a human wall, protesters were not happy and that is when things got a little out of hand.
i want to go to some of the video i shot because after that happened, after that human wall was put up and people started being arrested, that was when some people got angry and you can see in this video, a cop going after somebody who he thought had done some wrong. you're about to see a photographer come into play who didn't necessarily know who was going on. she was shoved very hard down to the ground. that sparked more outrage between a lot of these protesters who were out here, who were angry most of the day. but i do want to go to more video because this is just sort of the icing on the cake. there was lots of problems that they had today and this other video, you can actually see some of the violence that happened at the station. this was in the castro area. officers didn't even go downstairs when this large group of 80 or 90 people went downstairs and they were obviously you can see in this
video, not happy. after that video, you can also see some other video and in this video, this is the first group that actually got arrested, a group that i was walking side by side with. at one point, they were surrounded by officers and they tried to get out, tried to leave and officers said, no, you're not going anywhere. and that was when the arrests started. i can tell you just from being out here with these protesters, with officers for so long, some of these people who were arrested, emptied out the backpacks and one gentleman pound a hammer inside. in addition to that hammer, there was also a gas mask in there. but in total, 35 people, at least 35 people arrested today in these protests that happened. for now, reporting live downtown in san francisco, j.r. stone, kron4 news. >> today, san francisco's police concluded that harding did have knownshot residue on his hand when he was shot and killed by two officers and that
testing is supporting eyewitness accounts the 19-year- old was firing at officers when he was shot saturday. the police chief said that harding fired the first shot at officers who shot back about nine times. and continuing our team coverage tonight, reggie kumar, he is live at the scene to explain why the roarses are -- protesters are so upset. >> protesters say they marched today to give a voice to 19- year-old kenneth harding, jr. the man that was shot and killed in the bay view district on saturday. go ahead and take a look at this video. now, the protesters walked all over the city screaming obscenities at san francisco police officers. they believe the shooting was racially motivated. they're comparing it to the oscar grant case. they allege harding was shot 10 more times in the back by police officers after he was already dead.
here's what two protesters said about the importance of today's march. >> marching for the man that got shot down on 3rd and oakdale right where i hang out because brothers like me get criminalized every day. the police hop on the train and they do the fare inspection and if you don't have a transfer and you try to run, they chase you down. >> we're angry because we want those cops who were responsible for shooting him in the back 10 times to be down in the jail. if they were treated everybody else, they would be in jail right now. >> it's a racist double standard that we're not going to inspect. we're going to get the truth. we have no faith in the police investigation. i want those officers jailed. >> the chief will be holding a special public meeting tomorrow regarding the investigation into this officer-involved shooting that happened on
