Five people were shot and wounded in Minneapolis as they protested the police-involved shooting

*Minneapolis police have arrested one of three white men wanted in connection with the shootings of five people near a police station where demonstrators have gathered for more than a week to protest the recent killing of an unarmed black man by officers.

Police have arrested a 23-year-old man, according to CNN. The department is still looking for additional suspects, according to the report.

None of the injuries were believed to be life-threatening in the shooting late Monday, a block from the police station where protests have taken place since the fatal shooting of Jamar Clark, 24, on Nov. 15, Minneapolis police said in a statement. The wounded were taken to local hospitals.

The Black Lives Matter Minneapolis group protesting Clark’s shooting said on its Facebook page that five unarmed protesters were shot by what it described as white supremacists who had been asked to leave the area and were followed out by protesters before they opened fire.

The police, however, have not yet confirmed a connection between the shooting and the protest.

Black Lives Matter plans a march on Tuesday afternoon and Kandace Montgomery, a spokeswoman for the group, said the shooting has not shaken the group’s resolve.

As previously reported, questions have been raised as to whether Clark was handcuffed when he was shot, which police have denied, and protesters have demanded that authorities release videos of the Nov. 15 incident.

Clark died the next day from a gunshot wound to the head and the officers involved are on leave.

Earlier on Monday, Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton said he reviewed video footage taken from the back of an ambulance and said it does not appear to show conclusively what happened in Clark’s shooting.
