1 Arrested in Minneapolis Protest Shootings, Protesters Vow to Continue
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The latest in the investigation into the fatal shooting of a black man by Minneapolis police that has sparked more than a week of demonstrations.
Protesters who have been camped outside a Minneapolis police precinct for more than a week since the fatal shooting of a black man say they will not leave.
Members of Black Lives Matter said Tuesday at a brief news conference that they "will not bow to fear" or "intimidation" after five protesters were shot Monday night. No one suffered life-threatening injuries.
The protests erupted after 24-year-old Jamar Clark died in a confrontation with police Nov. 15. Some community members said Clark was handcuffed, which police have disputed.
Clark's family had asked the protests to stop after Monday's shootings.
Police on Tuesday said they have arrested two men in the shootings and are seeking other suspects.
