Bishop of church hosting Amir Locke funeral says Mayor Frey won't be there, MPD leadership not welcome
February 17, 2022
Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey will not be attending Thursday's funeral for Amir Locke, the man who was fatally shot by police early this month in a downtown apartment, and the bishop officiating the service said the city's Police Department leadership should also not attend.
The 22-year-old Locke will be eulogized during the funeral at Shiloh Temple International Ministries on West Broadway in north Minneapolis, where noted civil rights leader the Rev. Al Sharpton will give the eulogy.
Shiloh Temple Bishop Richard Howell Jr. said someone from Frey's office called him Tuesday with his decision.
