Protest over police-involved shooting in Inwood

Sept. 17, 2011

INWOOD (WABC) -- A massive protest on Saturday in Upper Manhattan over the
police-involved shooting of an Inwood man.

Demonstrators are calling for answers in the death of John Collado, 43,
earlier this month.

His family says he was trying to help a neighbor struggling with a
stranger by putting the stranger in a chokehold.

But it turned out that stranger was an undercover police officer
conducting an arrest.

The officer shot Collado in the stomach, killing him.

The NYPD has said it's investigating the shooting.
