The protests at the police precinct are in their tenth day following the shooting death of 24-year-old Jamar Clark. Authorities say Clark was shot during a struggle with police, but some people who say they saw the shooting allege Clark was 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.”
