MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The latest on the investigation into the shooting by a Minneapolis police officer of a black man suspected in an assault, an incident that sparked protests. (All times local):

7:20 a.m.

A handful of demonstrators remain camped outside a Minneapolis precinct station as the investigation continues into the shooting by a police officer of a black man suspected in an assault.

The number of protesters dwindled overnight into Monday as rain and windy conditions moved in. A banner that reads “Black Lives Matter” has been erected at the site.

A man suspected in an assault was shot by police about 1 a.m. Sunday. Accounts from some witnesses that the man was handcuffed when he was shot led to outrage, sparked protests and prompted a community forum with the mayor and police chief. Police said their preliminary investigation shows the man was not handcuffed.

An investigation has been turned over to a state agency.
