Hundreds At Vigil Remember Man Shot By Officer
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -The latest in the investigation into the fatal shooting of a black man by Minneapolis police that has sparked days of demonstrations.
Hundreds are gathered outside a Minneapolis police precinct to remember a black man who was fatally shot by an officer.
The vigil was peaceful on Friday evening. Several speakers are calling for unity and justice in the wake of Sunday's shooting of 24-year-old Jamar Clark.
Many attendees are holding candles, and several children are sitting on their parents' shoulders, taking in the event on a cold night. Several bonfires have been lit in the area, filling the air with smoke.
Clark was shot Sunday after authorities say he struggled with an officer. Some community members allege Clark was handcuffed. Police dispute that.
