A man who was fatally shot earlier this week and crashed the car he was driving onto a highway in north Minneapolis was an "influential and beloved" teacher at a nearby charter school, former colleagues confirmed.
School officials in a statement identified the victim as Harvey Williams, who police say was fatally shot Tuesday evening by a suspect or suspects.
The charter school where he worked is part of KIPP (Knowledge Is Power Program) schools, a nationwide network founded nearly three decades ago and has grown to 66 schools in 19 states.
