(AP) -

Police near San Diego say a black man shot by a police officer has died.

Police in El Cajon say the man was shot after pulling an object from his pocket and pointing it in a "shooting stance" toward two officers.

Police Chief Jeff Davis said at a news conference Tuesday night that one of the officers had tried and failed to subdue the man with a stun gun before the other officer opened fire.

Davis would not say what the object was, but says the man was unarmed.

The shooting spurred protests at the scene alleging police racism that lasted for several hours.
