Funeral Set as Protests Continue

Funeral plans are set for a black man whose fatal shooting by Minneapolis police has sparked protests.

Jamar Clark’s funeral will be Wednesday at Shiloh Temple International Ministries in north Minneapolis.

His cousin, Kenya McKnight, says the service and visitation will be open to the public and news media.

Protesters have been demonstrating outside a Minneapolis police station since Clark was shot during a struggle with officers who were answering an assault complaint last Sunday.

McKnight says Clark’s family hopes there are no rallies on the day of the funeral.
