MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Funeral plans are set for a black man whose fatal shooting by Minneapolis police has sparked protests.
A cousin of Jamar Clark says Clark’s funeral will be Wednesday at Shiloh Temple International Ministries in north Minneapolis.
Kenya McKnight says the service will start at noon and last an hour. A visitation will be held at the church before the funeral, from 10 a.m. to noon. McKnight says both will be open to the public and news media.
Protesters have been demonstrating outside a Minneapolis police station since Clark was shot during a struggle with officers who were answering an assault complaint last Sunday. McKnight says Clark’s family hopes there are no rallies on the day of the funeral. She says the family “does not want it to be political.”
Despite cold weather, protesters remain outside the police Fourth Precinct office.
