    Alton Sterling's son, Cameron, spoke publicly for the first time since his father was shot and killed by police last Tuesday outside a Louisiana convenience store. He called for peaceful protests. "People in general, no matter what the race is, should come together as one untied family," said Cameron pleaded. "There should be no more arguments, disagreements, violence, crimes." (Published Wednesday, July 13, 2016)

    The teenage son of a black man killed by white police officers told a crowd of reporters gathered at the Triple S convenience store where his father died that he wants everyone "to protest the right way, protest in peace."

    Cameron Sterling spoke to reporters on Wednesday calling his father, Alton Sterling, "a good man," adding "he will always be a good man."

    The 15-year-old, who a week ago sobbed as his mother talked about Sterling's death, stood composed as he called for peace, saying he wanted protesters angry about his father's death to "protest in peace."

    He said there should be no violence.
