Man Shot by Minneapolis Police has Died
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Authorities investigating the shooting of an unarmed black man by Minneapolis police say they have several videos of the incident but none that show it in its entirety.
Jamar ONeal Clark, 24, was shot early Sunday in a scuffle with officers, and died Monday. Police say they were called to the scene because Clark was interfering with medical personnel responding to a domestic assault call.
Drew Evans, superintendent of the state Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, says video has been obtained from an ambulance, a mobile police camera that had been set up in the area, surveillance video and onlookers' cellphones.
But he repeated that no video would be released now because it might taint the investigation. Protesters have demanded that video be released, saying they don't trust investigators.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Authorities say a black man shot by Minneapolis police during an apparent scuffle has died.
The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, which is investigating the shooting, said Tuesday that 24-year-old Jamar Oneal Clark died Monday evening. Clark's family had said he was on life support after the shooting early Sunday morning.
The shooting has sparked protests in Minneapolis, including one Monday night in which 42 people were arrested after the blocked an interstate highway. Some community members have alleged Clark was handcuffed when he was shot, which police have disputed.
Mayor Betsy Hodges has requested a federal civil rights investigation in addition to the state investigation already underway.
