Protesters from the Black Lives Matter demonstrated in Minneapolis because of the police shooting of Jamar Clark, who according to witnesses at the time was unarmed and handcuffed.
A state agency is investigating the November 15 incident. Relatives of the affected man say he is on life support.
On November 16, Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges called for a federal civil rights investigation into the case.
Black Lives Matter became famous after the police shooting of a black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri, in 2014.
This sparked protests across the country over the police use of excessive force against African Americans.
Jamar Clark, a 24-year-old black man, was shot dead after police were called in to attack, and police say he “intervened” in paramedics assisting the victim of the attack.
Police said disinformation was being spread about the Jamar Clark case, and some told reporters he was not handcuffed.
On November 15, about 150 people gathered to demonstrate at the scene of the shooting, and some set up camp in front of the police station.
The officer involved in the shooting has not yet been identified, but two officers are on paid leave.
The organizers of Black Lives Matter insist on the release of all videos that may exist for the debate.
“We’ve been saying for a long time that Minneapolis is a bullet from Ferguson.” Jason Soul, chairman of the Minneapolis chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), told Minnesota.
“That bullet was fired last night.” We want justice immediately. “
Jamar Clark was convicted of making terrorist threats, aggravated robbery and possession of a small amount of marijuana.
In 2013, Minneapolis police shot and killed 22-year-old Negro Terrance Franklin, who was suspected of burglary.
Minneapolis is participating in a federal program of the Ministry of Justice to increase trust between the police and their communities.
