The brother of the man whose fatal shooting by a police officer has prompted protests in Minneapolis is calling for the end of a more than weeklong sit-in at a police precinct.

In a statement issued early Tuesday morning by the office of U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison, whose district includes Minneapolis, Eddie Sutton says his family appreciates the support protesters have shown since the death of his brother, Jamar Clark.

But Sutton says that in light of the shooting of five people near the 4th Precinct sit-in, the family believes the demonstrations there should be ended "out of imminent concern for the safety of the occupiers."

Minneapolis police say five people had injuries that were not life-threatening after the shooting. No one was in custody, and police were asking anyone with information to come forward.

Black Lives Matter Minneapolis said in a statement earlier Monday that the group would announce the next steps it had planned at a news conference Tuesday.

1:30 a.m.

Minneapolis police say five people were shot near the site of an ongoing protest over the fatal shooting of a black man by a police officer, and they are seeking help in identifying suspects.

A news release from Police Department spokesman John Elder says officers responded to the sound of gunshots around 10:40 p.m. Monday and 911 calls shortly after reported five people had been shot.

The statement says dozens of officers responded to assist victims at the scene a block north of the police department's 4th Precinct, which has been the site of protests since the shooting of 24-year-old Jamar Clark on Nov. 15.

No suspects are in custody. Police are interviewing witnesses and asking anyone with information to come forward.

Elder says three victims were taken to a hospital in a private vehicle, and two were transported by ambulance. All had injuries that were not life-threatening.

The statement says the department has additional uniformed officers in the area for extra security.
