.........According to authorities, officers arrived and a physical altercation took place with Jamar Clark. Authorities say Clark was not in handcuffs. During the struggle, an officer discharged his weapon, striking the suspect, according to Minneapolis Police.

But several witnesses say Clark was in handcuffs at the time of the shooting.

"Every witness account I heard said he was handcuffed. Every witness account. Put a knee on him and shot in the head. That's the account I've heard from young people, older people, etc.," said Jason Sole, criminal justice chair for the Minneapolis NAACP.

51 arrested in protests after black man shot by Minneapolis police

MINNEAPOLIS — Hundreds of protesters shut down northbound Interstate 94 through Minneapolis Monday night reacting to the shooting of a black man by Minneapolis police. In all, 51 people were arrested.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation reports protesters were on the freeway, attempting to block traffic. The shutdown first started around 7 p.m.

Several area metro police departments were on scene attempting to control the situation. According to the Minnesota State Patrol, protesters were given four warnings to disperse or be subject to arrest.

Shortly before 9 p.m., authorities began arresting protesters. The state patrol later said 43 adults and eight juveniles were arrested and will be charged with unlawful assembly and pedestrian on freeway, both misdemeanors.

The state patrol says numerous cars were damaged in the protest. At least on trooper was punched by a protester, and that person fled the scene.

Family members said Jamar Clark, 24, was shot in a scuffle with officers early Sunday morning. Police say he was a suspect in a domestic assault and interfered with paramedics who responded to the scene. Some witnesses allege Clark was handcuffed when he was shot.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl
