Activists held a peace march in downtown Minneapolis to demand answers in the death of another black man shot by police.

Thurman Blevins died nearly two weeks ago. He was shot by two Minneapolis police officers after investigators say he ran from them. The officers were responding to 911 calls of a man firing a handgun in North Minneapolis.
