A protest continues outside the Fourth Precinct police station in north Minneapolis surrounding Sunday’s shooting death of 24-year-old Jamar Clark. Kandace Montgomery with Black Lives Matter says while officials of that group were at a meeting with Mayor Betsy Hodges, police decided to make demonstrators leave the area. Montgomery says it’s on Hodges’ hands because she “doesn’t care about black people.” Hodges says she met with 6 members of Black Lives Matter and two members of the Clark Family this morning from 10:30-11:10am at Zion Church in Minneapolis. MPD began to clear the vestibule at approximately 1:50pm CST. Minneapolis Police Sergeant Steve Mosey (MOE-zee) says demonstrators were blocking the entrance so the chief made the decision that officers needed to open up the building to the public. Protesters say they have no plans to leave the fourth precinct police station until video of the shooting is released and the officers involved are held accountable.
