In Minneapolis, protesters have been taking to the streets following the fatal police shooting of 22-year-old Amir Locke last week. The Minneapolis Police Department released a video of the raid Thursday, in which a SWAT team stormed into an apartment where they found and shot Locke, who was not a suspect in their warrant. On Friday, Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey announced a moratorium on no-knock warrants. Amir Locke’s parents described him as a talented musician and beloved community member while speaking at a press conference Friday. His mother, Karen Locke, called for accountability in her son’s killing.

Karen Locke: “At the end of the day, I believe that he was executed by the MPD, and I want the police officer that murdered my son to be prosecuted and fired.”
