Democratic presidential candidate and South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg speaks at the SC Democratic Convention in Columbia, South Carolina, U.S., June 22, 2019. At one point, a man yelled at Buttigieg: "You gotta get back to SC like you was yesterday?"
Prosecutors investigating Eric Logan's death say the shooting wasn't recorded on Sgt. Ryan O'Neill's body camera.
"You running for president and you expect black people to vote for you?" someone demanded.
After the event, he told CNN that he was "sick of these things being talked about in political terms ... it's people's lives", referring to the shootings of black men at the hands of police officers. "That's not going to happen".
"I'm not asking for your vote", Buttigieg responded. Another officer took Logan in a squad auto to the hospital, where he later died. The camera, sirens and dashboard camera are part of an inter-connected system.
St. Joseph County Sheriff William Redman issued a statement Sunday saying the County Police Department assisted South Bend Police Department with reports of multiple shooting as well as a crowd of "100 upset and angry citizens" that traveled from Kelly's Pub to a local hospital, prompting a lockdown. He left the campaign trail for part of the week to handle the situation in South Bend, and canceled plans to attend South Carolina Democratic Rep. Jim Clyburn's annual fish fry.
One black audience member, shouting at Buttigieg as he sat next to the city's white police chief, whom he had just given his backing to, yelled: "How do you expect us to trust you?" "Of course black lives matter".
Speaking to reporters after the meeting, a clearly emotional Buttigieg said anger and frustration over race relations in the city had been "hurled" at him. He went back to SC to speak alongside other candidates on Saturday, then returned home again. He said he did not know if it was smart politically to open himself up to such audiences, but "it's my city, and I love my city".
