At least 5 people were reportedly shot during a Black Lives Matter protest in Minneapolis, late Monday night.

The protest was being held in response to the fatal shooting of Jamar Clark by police assigned to the Fourth Precinct. Police have not released any information on a possible suspect or suspects.


Authorities alleged Clark was shot during a struggle with police, but witnesses say he was already handcuffed.

Eddie Sutton, Jamar Clark’s brother, released a statement: “Thank you to the community for the incredible support you have shown for our family in this difficult time. We appreciate Black Lives Matter for holding it down and keeping the protests peaceful. But in light of tonight’s shootings, the family feels out of imminent concern for the safety of the occupiers, we must get the occupation of the 4th precinct ended and onto the next step.”

    I heard the police antagonized the crowd before calling an ambulance. The hatred runs deep in this country. Sometimes it’s hard to tell if we’re moving forward or backward.

      According to their local newsfeed, the cops arrested a 23-year-old white male and a 32-year-old Hispanic male, and are searching for a third white, male.

      Allegedly (as they say) white supremacists have showed up numerous times, taunting the BLM protesters.
      My personal take on this is that a few of those racists were probably cops from another town.

  • First, we wish for anyone who has been shot to get a full recovery. One suspect is a white man and another suspect is a Hispanic man. Miski Noor, a media contact for Black Lives Matter, said “a group of white supremacists showed up at the protest, as they have done most nights.” Noor said that these white supremacists shot at the demonstrators. So, there is no question that we are in a war.

    This movement for social change will not stop. BLM grassroots activists have shown great courage. These protesters are fighting police brutality and they never advocate nihilism but justice. The people who were shot just were demonstrating. They wanted their voices to be heard. This incident will never intimidate us. We are black. We have survived a lot and we will continue to oppose not only crooked, terrorist cops. We will oppose any injustice in the world period.
