    At a news conference at City Hall, Minneapolis Police Chief Janee Harteau urged the community to call the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, which is conducting an investigation. Anyone with information is urged to call the BCA at 651-793-7000.

    "Family members confirmed that the man shot was 24-year-old Jamar Clark and that he has died.
    According to a statement released by Rep. Raymond Dehn (DFL-Minneapolis), who represents the area in which the incident occurred, Clark is currently on life support at Hennepin County Medical Center."

    NAACP Demands Justice In North Minneapolis Police Shooting
    November 15, 2015 3:45 PM

    "The group says police shot Jamar Clark “execution-style” at the intersection of James and Plymouth avenues.

    They said Clark was killed, although officials say he is being treated at Hennepin County Medical Center."

    This disturbs me a great deal:

    The shooting happened after police said they were called to north Minneapolis at about 12:45 a.m. Sunday for a report of an assault. When they arrived, the man had returned and was interfering with paramedics who were assisting the victim, police said.
    Was he an abuser? Was the victim his wife or girlfriend? I know this doesn't mean he deserved to be shot, but if that's the case it makes me very angry he would go back to the scene and try to inflict even more damage on the victim.

    It will be interesting to see what parts are true. I don't want to believe he was in handcuffs when they shot him, but I know better.

    I'm sorry they killed him and I'm sorry his family has to deal with the ugliness and pain that's ahead of them. They deserve justice.

    Sounds like the NAACP has investigated & determined what happened. What's the BCA waiting for?

    According to JC's supporters, he wasn't bothering the police & they handcuffed him, laid him on the ground & shot him in the head. With all the people & cameras around these had to be the stupidest cops on earth.
