Activists are demanding authorities release video evidence they've gathered related to the shooting of Jamar Clark at the scene of a paramedic call early the morning of Nov. 15.

The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension said it has some video from the scene in north Minneapolis, although none of it shows the incident "in its entirety," said BCA Superintendent Drew Evans.  He said the agency won't release videos at this point in the investigation.

People at the scene posted cell phone video of the immediate aftermath of the shooting on YouTube. The other video sources include cameras on an ambulance, Minneapolis public housing and a nearby "stationary" police camera.

Investigators and protesters alike are interested in video that may exist from cameras mounted on the Elks Club across the street from the shooting. Evans said Tuesday the BCA is "working with Elks Club ... to examine their video."
