Jamar Clark shooting's aftermath: Scenes from a chaotic week [PHOTOS]



The shooting death of Jamar Clark, a 24-year-old black Minneapolis man, has dominated local news and public conversation since the incident occurred last Sunday morning. Clark, then the suspect in an ongoing domestic violence dispute, was accused of interfering with efforts to transfer the victim to a hospital. Witnesses in the North Minneapolis neighborhood where Clark was shot by police contend he was handcuffed at the time, but the officers say Clark had stolen one of their guns, and was shot in self-defense. The controversy inspired a wave of protests, led by the Black Lives Matter group, which staged public demonstrations on I-94 near the site of the shooting, where dozens were arrested. Protesters also appeared all week at the Minneapolis Police Department 4th Precinct, demanding swift justice for Clark, including the release of surveillance videotape they say will prove he was unarmed, handcuffed, and murdered in cold blood.
