Protesters dig in, plan to stay at 4th Precinct encampment

A Minneapolis man who says he was shot at the protest Monday night outside the city's fourth police precinct says Jamar Clark was one of his best friends.
Eighteen-year-old Wesley Martin says he was following some suspicious-looking men out of the protest when words were exchanged. He says people started charging after someone said a racial slur.
"I'm running. I get to the corner. I feel something go right through my leg. I thought I fell or something like that. But I went to pull up my pant leg, and all I see is blood. I sat down, and after that, I don't remember nothing," Martin said.
Martin was treated at Hennepin County Medical Center and came back to the protest site Tuesday with a cane. He says nothing will stop him from showing support for Clark. Police have arrested two suspects in last night's shooting.
Protest leader: "When people of color are under attack, what do we do?"
Protesters: "Stand up, fight back!"
