Minneapolis Shooting: Witness Says Man Was in Handcuffs When Shot by Police

Smoke tumbled from several small bonfires surrounded by protesters warming their hands outside the 4th Police Precinct in North Minneapolis on Saturday.

The demonstrators are a mixed crowd of black, white, and brown people who say they will not leave until justice is done. At the very least, they want any video that police have to be released in the officer-involved fatal shooting of 24-year-old Jamar Clark . . .

Several witnesses to the shooting or immediate aftermath told CNN the public needs to understand why the protesters are so angry. The witnesses are adamant that there was no reason for police to shoot Clark — they say he was restrained.

One told CNN he is sure Clark was handcuffed. Another said he was unable to move . . .

Wilson said he had just walked out of the Elks Lodge as it was closing when he saw the officers with Clark on the ground.
