NAACP to Hold Vigil at Minneapolis Police Station
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The NAACP is organizing a candlelight vigil and march for Friday evening outside a Minneapolis police station that's been the scene of protests since the fatal shooting of an unarmed black man by a police officer.
Speaking at a news conference outside the station Thursday, Stephen Green, national director of the NAACP's youth and college division, called for a candlelight vigil and march there starting at 4:30 p.m. Friday. He said the weather may be cold, but people's hearts are burning for justice for Jamar Clark.
Clark was shot by an officer Sunday.
Nekima Levy-Pounds, president of the Minneapolis chapter of the NAACP, renewed demands for investigators to release video of the shooting. She rejected authorities' claims that releasing video would compromise the integrity of the investigation.
