(Minneapolis, MN) — The Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) has completed its investigation into the November 15, 2015, officer-involved fatal shooting of Jamar Clark. The BCA’s findings have been turned over to the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office for review. The BCA says the investigation remains open during the review process. Just yesterday, the Minnesota ACLU and Minneapolis NAACP filed a suit against the BCA to release videotapes of the shooting.
Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman’s Statement:
The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension has completed its nearly three-month investigation into the fatal shooting of Jamar Clark by Minneapolis police officers. The BCA delivered its case file to the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office late Tuesday afternoon. Prosecutors will now review the file for completeness and additional investigation may be necessary. Although it is difficult to predict how long the review will take, Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman said he would like to have a decision on whether charges are brought by the end of March.
