Officers Identified in Minneapolis Officer-Involved Shooting

Authorities have identified the two Minneapolis police officers involved in a shooting over the weekend that left a 24-year-old man dead. 

Officer Mark Ringgenberg and Officer Dustin Schwarze were involved in the shooting of Jamar Clark.  Both are one year vets of the Minneapolis Police Department, with seven years of police experience.

Clark was shot in the head Sunday by the officers.  He died Monday night after being taken off of life support. 

Police say Clark was a suspect in a domestic assault and was shot after allegedly interfering with paramedics who were trying to provide first aid to the victim. 

The shooting prompted protests after some witnesses said the man was handcuffed and not resisting when he was shot. 

The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is investigating the incident. 

A federal Civil Rights investigation has also been launched.
