ALLENTOWN, Pa. (AP) -- A vigil has been organized for a man shot and killed by police near a popular Pennsylvania amusement park.
Joseph Santos of Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey, was shot Saturday evening in South Whitehall Township, near Dorney Park.
Police say the 44-year-old Santos was damaging cars and interfering with traffic before an officer confronted him.
Vigil organizers from the group Make The Road Pennsylvania say a vigil is scheduled for Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. near the shooting site.
They say Santos's behavior didn't justify the shooting. The group supports Latino and Latina residents across the state.
The group issued a statement calling the shooting an act of "extreme police brutality."
Lehigh County District Attorney Jim Martin said he would refrain from commenting until the state police investigation is concluded.
