Protesters stage a die-in in front of LAPD headquarters in Los Angeles, California, on March 3, 2015, over the death of a homeless man known as "Africa"A homeless man shot by police in Los Angeles was a French national and convicted criminal, the LA Times reported Tuesday, as protesters continued to voice anger at the killing. The newspaper identified the man, killed Sunday after a struggle with police caught on a video which went viral, as 39-year-old Charley Saturmin Robinet. It cited law enforcement records as saying Robinet -- identified by others on LA's Skid Row homeless district only as "Africa" -- was convicted of armed robbery 15 years ago and jailed. LA police chief Charlie Beck said Monday that the victim, who police have not identified, tried to grab a gun from one of four officers who were trying to restrain him on the city's Skid Row homeless district.

Sunderland's English midfielder Lee Cattermole (L) vies with Hull City's English midfielder Jake Livermore during their English Premier League football match in Kingston upon Hull, England on March 3, 2015Christian Benteke scored a nerveless stoppage-time penalty as Aston Villa edged West Bromwich Albion 2-1 on Tuesday to earn new manager Tim Sherwood a precious first Premier League victory. Sherwood, who succeeded the sacked Paul Lambert last month, celebrated jubilantly at the final whistle after what could prove a turning point in his bid to prevent Villa succumbing to a first relegation in 28 years. Gabriel Agbonlahor put the hosts in front in the 15th minute at Villa Park, running onto Benteke's flick-on and sliding the ball past Ben Foster. Foster had previously almost allowed a tame shot from Agbonlahor to squirm beneath him and over the line, while Joleon Lescott was forced to clear off the line from Agbonlahor and Villa midfielder Fabian Delph hit the post in first-half stoppage time.
