A Minneapolis press conference addressing the killing of Amir Locke took an unexpected turn when a Black civil rights attorney and activist interrupted the city’s mayor and police chief, chastising them for engaging in a “cover-up” over the young man’s death. As interim Police Chief Amelia Huffman addressed reporters with Mayor Jacob Frey standing by her side, her remarks were interrupted by Nekima Levy Armstrong, a former president of the Minneapolis NAACP who has served as co-chair of a citywide safety working group convened by the mayor.
