5 Shot at Black Lives Matter Protest [VIDEO]

Black Lives Matter protesters say two white supremacists shot five people at a Black Lives Matter sit-in near a Minneapolis police station late Monday. Demonstrators have been conducting a vigil outside the station over the death of 24-year-old Jamar Clark, who was fatally shot by a white police officer on Nov. 15, triggering a Justice Department investigation. Miski Noor, a spokeswoman for the local BLM group, said three white male counter-demonstrators arrived at the scene “as they have most nights.” When a group of protesters tried to move them away, Noor said two of the men opened fire and then fled. All five of those shot have non-life-threatening injuries, police spokesman John Elder told the AP. Early Tuesday, Minneapolis Police tweeted they are searching for three white suspects. Clark’s brother, Eddie Sutton, issued a statement calling for the end of the occupation “out of imminent concern” for the safety of protesters.
