MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The latest in the investigation into the fatal shooting of a black man by Minneapolis police that has sparked more than a week of demonstrations (all times local):

6:55 a.m.

The family of a black man who was fatally shot by Minneapolis police are preparing to lay him to rest.

Funeral services for 24-year-old Jamar Clark will be held at noon Wednesday at Shiloh Temple International Ministries in north Minneapolis. A visitation will be held at the church for two hours before the funeral. Both are open to the public.

Clark was shot on Nov. 15 during what police said was a struggle. Some who say they saw the shooting allege Clark was handcuffed when he was shot, but police have disputed that. Two investigations - one by the state and one by federal authorities - are underway.

Clark’s funeral comes two days after shots were fired at protesters, leaving five with injuries that are not life-threatening.
