The U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigations says it will conduct a civil rights investigation into the police shooting of a black man in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges requested the probe. It will be conducted alongside a separate investigation by the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension.
Jamar Clark, 24, was shot during an altercation with officers following a domestic dispute at a party Sunday night. He died Monday at a hospital.
Authorities have released few details about the incident, angering many who say Clark was handcuffed at the time of the shooting. Police say preliminary information shows that he was not handcuffed.
Since the shooting, hundreds of demonstrators have protested across the city demanding that police release available videos of the shooting. On Monday, more than 50 people were arrested after demonstrators shut down a major highway for several hours.
