Funeral services took place Saturday for Thurman Blevins, who was shot and killed last month by Minneapolis police.  

The private memorial, with no media allowed at the family's request, was at Faith Deliverance Holiness Church at 1119 Morgan Avenue on the city's north side.

Mourners dressed in white and bright colors, and exchanged hugs of support on a warm and humid day before entering the church building for the service.

Burial is at Crystal Lake Cemetery, just north of Folwell Park.

Blevins was 31 years old when he died on June 23 in north Minneapolis.

The BCA is still investigating what happened leading up to the shooting by two Minneapolis officers, who were responding to a 9-1-1 call about a man firing a gun in the neighborhood.
