Kim Mok-yeon reports. Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker announced a state of emergency and activated the National Guard in the city of Milwaukee on Sunday, a day after a police officer killed a suspect who allegedly turned toward the officer with a gun. "The National Guard will be activated, but it will not be deployed unless Chief Flynn decides to deploy it. One hundred-twenty five members of the National Guard are on their way to Milwaukee as we speak." Police Chief Edward Flynn said the officer tried to stop the 23 year old suspect, identified as Sylville Smith because he was behaving suspiciously and had to chase him after he ran. Flynn added that Smith did not drop his gun as ordered before he was shot dead. At a news conference, Chief Flynn said both the police officer and the suspect were black, and that Smith had a "lengthy record" with the Milwaukee Police Department. At least 200 people reacted violently to news of the shooting. A mob damaged at least two police cars and vandalized several businesses,.. including a gas station and an auto parts store. Seventeen people were arrested and four police officers had to be treated for injuries. Kim Mok-yeon, Arirang News.
