A mass demonstration is planned on Wednesday at the Wisconsin corrections department in Madison in response to the fatal police shooting last week of an unarmed biracial teenager.

The shooting of Tony Robinson, 19, by a white Madison veteran police officer on Friday is the latest in a string of officer-involved deaths around the nation that have intensified concerns about racial bias in U.S. law enforcement.

Organizers said they expect about 1,000 people to gather in a park on Wednesday afternoon and march to the state corrections department building nearby to protest Robinson’s death.
