Protestors Demand Charges in Shooting Death of Jamar Clark
Hennepin County attorney Mike Freeman says he expects to have a decision in the Jamar Clark case by the end of March, and with that deadline looming, months of protests, demonstrators demanding the officers be charged, the city is bracing for what’s to come.
Family members of those killed in police shootings, including Jamar Clark’s father, spoke Saturday at a planned demonstration in favor of charging the two officers involved in his death.
Clark was shot by Minneapolis police on Sunday, November 15 outside of an apartment.
The 24-year-old died the next day after he was removed from life support.
Witnesses have said Clark was in handcuffs and unarmed at the time of the shooting, but Minneapolis police said preliminary reports indicate Clark was not handcuffed.
