MINNEAPOLIS -- More than 100 people gathered outside the Fourth Police Precinct in north Minneapolis Sunday morning to pray together.
Minneapolis NAACP held the outdoor church service at 11 a.m.
Sunday marked two weeks since Jamar Clark was shot by police officers near the intersection of James Avenue N. and Plymouth Avenue N. Protesters have been camped outside the Fourth Police Precinct ever since.
"We thank you, Lord for this strong showing of community support. For people who have come today to stand for justice for Jamar, to stand for justice for this entire community," said Nekima Levy-Pounds, president of Minneapolis NAACP, during a prayer.
Multiple people spoke during the service, including Pastor Brian Herron of Zion Baptist Church. The church is less than a mile from the precinct.
"Every culture coming together for how many days now? 15 days," Pastor Herron said.
Jill Henricksen of St. Paul came to the church service. It was her first time at the precinct.
"Spirituality to me is about justice and about humanity and how we treat each other as people. It's my faith, kind of as a humanist and humanity that brings me out here wanting to stand up for the wrong and the injustices I see," Henricksen said.
Speakers talked not only about God but addressed recent events that have taken place at the precinct, including the shooting that injured five protesters last week.
The Hennepin County Attorney's Office has until noon Monday to file charges against the four suspects.
