The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is investigating the fatal police shooting of an black man in north Minneapolis over the weekend.

The BCA said 31-year-old Thurman J. Blevins was armed and running from police officers Saturday, and that its agents found a black and silver handgun at the scene of the shooting.

Community members and activists have questioned the account of the death. They gathered Sunday for a protest at a police station and a candlelight vigil near the shooting scene.
