Protesters and police faced off outside the police department in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, as demonstrations over the death of Daunte Wright were held for a third consecutive night.
“Upwards of 60” people were arrested for riot and criminal behavior during the evening’s protest, according to the Minnesota State Patrol.
Demonstrations began in Brooklyn Center after a police officer fatally shot Daunte Wright during a traffic stop on April 11. Police Chief Tim Gannon described the shooting as an “accidental discharge”, saying to reporters that the officer in question drew a hand gun instead of a Taser. Credit: mandalore_mattv2 via Storyful
