Protests slow in New York after funeral for slain black man

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Mourners in New York held a funeral on a rain-soaked Saturday for a black man shot dead by a white patrol officer in a dimly lit stairwell, but streets were mostly quiet after three nights of demonstrations against police violence.

The shooting of Akai Gurley, 28, at a public housing project last month was the latest in a series of killings that have outraged protesters who see a pattern of excessive force being used by law enforcement against African-Americans.
