Family remembers Ohio woman shot by officer

LIMA, Ohio (AP) - Family members of a northwest Ohio woman shot and killed by a police officer a year ago have gathered to remember her.

Relatives of Tarika Wilson held candles and prayed Sunday night outside the house in Lima where she died last January. Among those who huddled at the house were the woman's young son who also was injured in the shooting.

The police officer who pulled the trigger during the drug raid was cleared of any wrongdoing last summer. Officers raided the home looking for Wilson's boyfriend, a suspected drug dealer who later pleaded guilty to drug trafficking.

The shooting set off protests about how police treat minorities.
