MONTEREY PARK, Calif. — An attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union said he had concerns about a volley of five shots a Monterey Park Police officer fired in a fatal officer-involved shooting caught on video.

ACLU staff attorney Peter Bibring, who specializes in police practices, said the shooting — which involved two volleys of five shots each — might have been an exhibit of excessive force. It was the second volley that concerned Bibring.
