Hundreds of Black Lives Matter Protesters Gather in Minneapolis Mall

Hundreds gathered on Wednesday at a mall of Minneapolis to protest the police shooting of Jamar Clark last month.

The protesters gathered in Mall of America's central rotunda on one of the busiest shopping days of the year, and then abruptly walked outside. Many chanted "What do we want? Justice! When do we want it? Now!" Police urged onlookers out of the mall's central rotunda, threatening arrest.

Police shot Clark while responding to a recent assault complaint.

The privately owned mall said another demonstration would mean lost sales. The massive retail center in the Minneapolis suburb of Bloomington houses an amusement park and more than 500 shops spread across four floors, attracting shoppers from around the globe.
