    The leader of a black socialist group called Thursday for the mayor to settle a lawsuit with the family of a black motorist fatally shot by a police officer in 1996.

    On Wednesday night, police in riot gear broke up an unruly crowd that threw rocks and bottles at cars and buildings after attorneys for Lewis' family wrapped up their case against the city in court.

    There were reports of gunfire, looting, and a car being set ablaze, police said. At least five people were injured, and four were arrested, police spokesman Bill Doniel said.

    Two of those arrested were accused of shooting at police officers, Doniel said. About 100 police officers were dispatched to help manage the disturbances.

    The person that was shot in '96 was probably doing something they shouldn't have been anyway...
