Rodney King gets light wounds in street shooting

Rodney King, the black man whose 1991 beating by Los Angeles police led to deadly rioting the next year, was wounded on a street corner.

King, 42, was hit in the face, arms, back and torso by birdshot fired from a shotgun. He was shot "possibly two or three times from a distance," then bicycled about 1 1/2 miles (2.4 kilometers) back to his home and called police Wednesday night, Rialto police Sgt. Craig Crispin told The Associated Press.

"Early indications are that it very possibly could have been a domestic dispute," San Bernardino police Lt. Scott Paterson told The Sun newspaper.

King's condition Thursday was not immediately known.

King was videotaped being beaten by white Los Angeles police officers after he was stopped for speeding in 1991. Four officers were acquitted of most criminal charges in 1992, triggering rioting in Los Angeles and neighboring cities that left 55 people dead and caused $1 billion in property damage.

King sued the city over the beating and obtained a $3.8 million settlement.

However, he continued to have run-ins with the law. In 2004, he was ordered to spend 120 days in jail after pleading guilty to driving under the influence of the drug PCP after he crashed his sport utility vehicle.

He announced his intention to create a news service called "Pravda," which means "truth" in Russian. Well, we are Pravda. The Pravda.Ru website has been working professionally in Russia since 1999
