Here is a video I put together from footage shot at the May 11, 2009 rally for Fong Lee held in downtown St. Paul. Fong Lee was shot by St. Paul police in 2006. For more information, see Fong Lee supporters flex muscle three years after controversial shooting death
From Fong Lee supporters flex muscle three years after controversial shooting death
Fong Lee was shot and killed on the playground of City View Elementary School in Minneapolis as he fled police in July, 2006. Andersen maintains he shot Lee after Lee started to point a gun in the officer’s direction. A state trooper also involved in the foot chase reported he saw Lee with the gun. A gun was found near Lee’s body after he was shot. But family members and others maintain Lee was unarmed and the officers planted the gun after the shooting. They say a brief, grainy videotape recording of the chase from a nearby surveillance camera bolsters their position because Lee’s hands appear empty.
