MINNEAPOLIS - The head of the Minneapolis police union says two officers involved in the fatal shooting of an unarmed black man have given statements to state investigators on the confrontation that led to the death of 24-year-old Jamar Clark on Sunday.
Union president Lt. Bob Kroll says the officers met Tuesday night with the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. Kroll says he hopes the investigation moves quickly now. BCA Superintendent Drew Evans said Tuesday that the names of the officers involved in the shooting would be released once they were interviewed.
Some community members say Clark was handcuffed when he was shot. Police say Clark was interfering with paramedics who were treating an injured woman, and have disputed that he was handcuffed.
Kroll says he hopes people who are making the handcuff allegations give statements to the BCA, and that they are charged with a crime if the statements turn out to be false.
