MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The fatal shooting of a black man by a Minneapolis police officer has prompted more than a week of protests and led to calls for answers as state and federal investigators piece together what happened. Jamar Clark, 24, was shot in the head Nov. 15 during what authorities said was a struggle with two police officers. Here's a look at where the investigation stands:
Tyrone Howard, 31, is charged with firing a single shot into the head of Officer Randolph Holder on Oct. 20 in the city's East Harlem neighborhood. "Not guilty," Howard said when asked how he pleaded to an 11-count indictment, as Holder's family and approximately 70 police officers watched from the courtroom gallery. The arraignment came two weeks after Howard was sentenced to the maximum 12 years in prison in a separate drug case for which he initially received treatment, rather than prison, as part of a plea agreement for selling crack cocaine.
Donald Trump's presidential campaign warned the Republican Party on Tuesday about donors pooling funds for attack ads, saying Republicans must treat him fairly if they want to keep him from launching an independent bid. Trump lawyer Michael Cohen told CNN that if Republican donors backing different presidential candidates come together for an anti-Trump advertising campaign, it would be a "bad, bad decision." The Super PAC planning the attack is New Day for America, which is supporting Ohio Governor John Kasich's presidential bid.
The luxury retailer, owned by Canadian department store operator Hudson's Bay Co , will start Black Friday sales on Wednesday, Chief Executive Jerry Storch said. "We thought it would be nice for customers to be able to come on Wednesday and get the great Black Friday offerings without having to go through the more crowded atmosphere on Friday," Hudson's Storch told Reuters. The upscale Saks Fifth Avenue stores will be closed on Thanksgiving, unlike the offprice Saks OFF 5TH stores that will remain open on the day.
