Hundreds of Protesters Converge on Minneapolis City Hall
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A massive line of protesters marched from Minneapolis' north side to downtown Minneapolis Monday afternoon demonstrating against the fatal shooting of a black man in a Nov. 15 confrontation with police.
The march ended with a large demonstration in front of Minneapolis City Hall, which closed earlier in anticipation of the protest.
Clark died in what police say was a scuffle that came about as they responded to an assault in which he was a suspect. Some community members have alleged he was handcuffed, which police have disputed. Two investigations are under way.
The ninth day of protests outside of a north Minneapolis police precinct erupted in gunfire late Monday night when five protesters were shot and wounded. Police have arrested two men in the shootings.
