Family of man shot in Brooklyn Center searches for answers

BROOKLYN CENTER, Minn. (KMSP) -

The family of a man shot and killed during a traffic stop in Brooklyn Center is looking for answers.

Police haven't identified the slain 24-year-old, but FOX 9 spoke with his family who identified him as Edmond Fair – and they simply want to know how something like this could have happened.

"My daughter was like, 'Who is going to kiss us every time they see us and tell us we are beautiful?' We ain't going to have that. They took that from us," Fair's aunt, Kiva Kidd, said.

Fair was driving this van in Brooklyn Center around 2 a.m. Friday morning when officers pulled it over on the westbound ramp to I-694.

Fair's family says they heard from passengers in the van that police handcuffed, tased and then eventually shot Fair during a struggle without telling him why they pulled him over.

"My son should be living and the people who killed my son should be punished, it's that simple," his mother said.

Peace activist KG Wilson says he met Fair for the first time Wednesday when fair showed up to help at a vigil for victims of a shooting in north Minneapolis.

Wilson planned vigil for Fair's family near the spot where Fair died at 3:00 on Saturday.
