ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Demonstrators stormed a police department in Orange County, Calif., to protest an officer-involved shooting that left a man dead and led to a violent clash between witnesses and police.  

A crowd filled the Anaheim police headquarters' lobby Sunday as Chief John Welter prepared to hold a press conference.  

The Orange County Register says protestors chanted "cops, pigs, murderers" as officers stood by and watched.  

Welter was to address the shooting and confrontation Saturday in which a crowd threw bottles at officers who responded with tear gas and beanbag rounds.   The dead man's name has not been released.  

Anaheim Sgt. Bob Dunn says the man was shot in front of an apartment complex Saturday afternoon following a foot chase. He died three hours later at a hospital.
