The fiancee of an unarmed man killed by New York City police in a 50-bullet barrage says she's running for a City Council seat.

Nicole Paultre Bell made the announcement in an interview with the Daily News.

She tells the paper what happened to her fiance Sean Bell made her realize "there are serious problems out there."

She's running to replace the seat left vacant by the death of Thomas White Jr.

But the 26-year-old doesn't live in the Jamaica, Queens, district she's looking to represent. She says she'll move there by the deadline, which is Election Day.

Sean Bell was fatally shot in 2006 outside a topless bar where he had a bachelor party. Undercover police went there to investigate complaints of prostitution.
