The head of the national NAACP said Thursday that a “criminal justice crisis” is bringing him to Minneapolis, where he will join with activists angered over the fatal police shooting of Jamar Clark, an unarmed black man who was wounded on the street late at night in an encounter with officers.

Cornell William Brooks, president of one of the nation’s oldest and most influential black civil-rights organizations, will attend a rally and candlelight vigil at 4:30 p.m. Friday outside the Police Department’s precinct headquarters in north Minneapolis, where activists have been maintaining a presence since Clark’s shooting a few blocks away early Sunday.

“We are watching the Minneapolis Police Department,” Stephen Green, national youth and college division director for the NAACP, said in a media briefing earlier Thursday outside the police station. “We may be cold, but our hearts are burning for justice.”
