The family of a 32-year-old Black Minneapolis man is calling for transparency in the investigation of the man’s death after he was shot Thursday by members of a U.S. Marshals Service task force who were trying to arrest him.

The death of the man identified by family as Winston Boogie Smith Jr. has thrust Minneapolis into a familiar situation days after the anniversary of the murder of George Floyd: Community members mistrustful of law enforcement are facing off with officials and demanding answers after the death of a Black person at the hands of police.
