    MINNEAPOLIS — The latest on the investigation into the shooting by a Minneapolis police officer of a black man suspected in an assault. The shooting has sparked protests. (all times local):

    10:45 p.m.

    A Minneapolis highway has reopened after the arrest of more than 50 protesters who helped shut it down.

    Hundreds of people protesting the weekend shooting of a black man by a Minneapolis police officer crossed Interstate 94 and brought traffic to a halt on Monday night. Minnesota State Patrol Lt. Tiffani Schweigart says 43 adults and 8 juveniles who refused multiple orders to disperse were arrested.

    She says those being arrested were cooperative and no use of force was required.

    Schweigart says the northbound lanes of the highway were closed for about two and a half hours.

    The shooting of 24-year-old Jamar Clark on Sunday sparked protests after some witnesses said he was handcuffed when he was shot. Police said their initial information showed Clark, a suspect in an assault, was not handcuffed.

    Clark was taken to a hospital after the shooting, and his family has said he is on life support.

    8 p.m.

    Hundreds of demonstrators are blocking traffic on a busy highway in north Minneapolis to protest the police shooting of a black man over the weekend.

    Media reports say the protesters headed to Interstate 94 and shut down the northbound lanes Monday evening after rallying at a police precinct.

    Traffic is blocked. The state Transportation Department reports protesters are on foot on the main line of the freeway.

    Some protesters are camping out at the Minneapolis police 4th Precinct office, near where 24-year-old Jamar Clark was shot in a scuffle with officers. The protesters are vowing to continue their occupation, calling for the release of any video authorities have of the incident and the names of the officers involved.

    Mayor Betsy Hodges has requested a federal civil rights investigation.

    5:30 p.m.

    Protesters are gathering outside a north Minneapolis police precinct near the site where officers shot a black man.

    About eight tents have been pitched around the building since the early Sunday shooting. Michael McDowell of the group Black Lives Matter says they won't leave until authorities release video footage of the shooting. It isn't clear what footage exists.

    Twenty-four-year-old Jamar Clark was shot in a scuffle with officers. Police say he was a suspect in a domestic assault and interfered with paramedics at the scene. Some witnesses allege Clark was handcuffed when he was shot.

    Mayor Betsy Hodges says she's requested a federal civil rights investigation in addition to the state investigation already underway.

    ___

    5:10 p.m.

    Minneapolis' police chief says two officers involved in the weekend shooting of a black man were not wearing body cameras.

    Chief Janee (juh-NAY') Harteau declined to talk about surveillance video or say whether the officers' squad car had a camera that might have captured the shooting.

    Twenty-four-year-old Jamar Clark was shot in the head early Sunday. Police say Clark, a suspect in a domestic assault, interfered with medical personnel and scuffled with officers.

    Some community members and activists say Clark was handcuffed when he was shot, and they staged protests Sunday and Monday.

    Harteau says two city police cars have been vandalized. She wasn't clear about where the cars were. She says one person was arrested and charged.

    ___

    5 p.m.

    The mayor of Minneapolis says she's requested a federal civil rights investigation into the weekend shooting of a black man by police.

    Mayor Betsy Hodges says she has confidence in investigators within the department and with the state Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. But Hodges says the city needs "all the tools we have available to us."

    Twenty-four-year-old Jamar Clark was shot in the head early Sunday. Police say they were responding to a domestic assault when Clark, a suspect in that incident, interfered with medical personnel and scuffled with officers.

    Some community members and activists say Clark was handcuffed when he was shot, and they staged protests that continued Monday.

    Gov. Mark Dayton issued a statement saying he supported the request.

    4:10 p.m.

    The president of the Minneapolis police union is urging calm as the weekend shooting of a black man is investigated.

    1:10 p.m.

    The father of a black man shot by a Minneapolis police officer says his son suffered one gunshot wound above his left eye.

    James Hill told The Associated Press that he saw Jamar Clark's wounds while standing at his bedside on Monday. Clark was put on life support after being shot by a Minneapolis police officer during a struggle shortly after midnight Sunday.

    Police say Clark was a suspect in a domestic assault and was shot after interfering with paramedics. Community activists and protesters claim he was shot while he was handcuffed.

    The shooting prompted outrage in the north Minneapolis community. Protesters were expected to remain outside the local police precinct throughout the day.

    ___

    9:35 a.m.

    An activist group is calling on police in Minneapolis to identify the officer involved in the shooting of a black man over the weekend.

    Black Lives Matter says 24-year-old Jamar Clark was shot after police responded to a reported assault in north Minneapolis early Sunday. Police have said the man was interfering with paramedics who were trying to help the assault victim, and was shot during a struggle.

    At a news conference Monday outside the city's 4th Precinct, Adja Gildersleeve and Kandace Montgomery of Black Lives Matter said Clark was handcuffed and not resisting when he was shot. The group is urging Mayor Betsy Hodges to ensure any video footage is released.

    Police and city leaders say misinformation is being spread about the shooting. The state Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is investigating.

    This item has been corrected to show that Clark is 24, not 22 years old.

    9:25 a.m.

    Protests over the shooting of a black man by a Minneapolis police officer are just the latest expression of tension between the department and minorities in the city.

    Outrage and a civil lawsuit followed the 2013 death of 22-year-old Terrance Franklin, a burglary suspect whom police pursued and shot in a Minneapolis basement. A grand jury declined to indict the officers involved.

    In 2014, a prominent civil rights activist Al Flowers complained of being the victim of brutality when police served a warrant on a relative at his home. Police say Flowers instigated their aggression.

    The rocky relations have led to discussions between police and minorities and the creation of task forces designed to quell concerns. A special civilian review authority was formed after the death of an elderly black couple during a botched drug raid decades ago.

    This spring, Minneapolis was selected for a federal Justice Department program to rebuild trust between police and the communities they patrol.

    ___

    7:20 a.m.

    A handful of demonstrators remain camped outside a Minneapolis precinct station as the investigation continues into the shooting by a police officer of a black man suspected in an assault.

    The number of protesters dwindled overnight into Monday as rain and windy conditions moved in. A banner that reads "Black Lives Matter" has been erected at the site.

    A man suspected in an assault was shot by police about 1 a.m. Sunday. Accounts from some witnesses that the man was handcuffed when he was shot led to outrage, sparked protests and prompted a community forum with the mayor and police chief. Police said their preliminary investigation shows the man was not handcuffed.

    An investigation has been turned over to a state agency.

    I am all for protests of any kind but youve gotta know when your protests are pissing off people who might have already agreed with you and turning people against your cause, which is the opposite of the goal of any protest. We had a teachers strike here in the downtown a couple years back, and i actually agreed with the teachers but then those fuckstains blocked the sidewalks in a fairly large area and when several tens of thousands of people cant get to their trains that starts to approach the closing of a highway and all those people late to get home now hope all you protesters die in a fire.

    Read the anarchist cookbook, if you wanna make a statement, choose the right target. If you have a bitch with the Church, go after the pope or some cardinals...do NOT firebomb your local soup kitchen. If a political leader is pissing you off, protest their personal house; make THEIR life hell, dont turn the public away from your cause.

    Waiting for all the smartphone videos showing him to be in handcuffs. If he really were in handcuffs when shot - there would be 1000 videos on the internet showing it.

    The very absence of those videos implies that he was being aggressive and not in handcuffs when shot.

    I could be wrong, but in this age of everyone with cameras - you'd think someone has a video showing what really happened.

    They are using terrorism tactics. Arrest them and charge them with terror offenses and this will quickly ease up.

    I think this penny-ante group might make more progress if they concentrated on the black on black violence. The dozens that die in Chicago every weekend aren't shot by cops or white people.

    Ship em' to Syria so they can spout their "hands up, don't shoot" garbage. I'm sure it will work.
