Alton Sterling, 37, who was shot dead by two white police officers who pinned him down outside a convenience store in Baton Rouge where he was selling CDs has been laid to rest.

Many of Alton Sterling’s grief-stricken relatives broke down in tears as mourners walked past his open casket to pay their respects at his funeral in Louisiana.

His son Cameron Sterling, 15, was consoled by Reverand Jesse Jackson after the funeral, as tears streamed down his face. The younger Sterling wore a tie bearing his father’s image with the words ‘when will it end?’
