Prosecutors must decide by noon on Monday whether to charge four men held by Minneapolis police in connection with the Nov. 23 wounding of five people protesting the fatal police shooting of an unarmed black man.
A judge on Wednesday gave the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office until midday on Monday to make a decision on charges against Allen Lawrence Scarsella, 23; Joseph Martin Backman, 27; Nathan Wayne Gustavsson, 21; and Daniel Thomas Macey, 26.
Minneapolis police, who are working with the FBI, have said they are not seeking any more suspects in the shooting of the protesters, who were demonstrating outside a police station against the fatal shooting on Nov. 15 of Jamar Clark, 24.
Scarsella, Gustavsson and Backman are white, while Macey is Asian, police said. None of the wounds to the five Black Lives Matter demonstrators were life-threatening, police said.
Questions have been raised over whether Clark was handcuffed when he was shot, which police have denied. Clark died the next day from a gunshot wound to the head. The officers involved are on leave.
