Protesters took to the streets of Minneapolis, Minnesota, on Monday, August 24, in solidarity with demonstrations in Kenosha, Wisconsin, following the officer-involved shooting of Jacob Blake on Sunday.
At least 11 protesters were arrested outside the Hennepin County Adult Detention Center in downtown Minneapolis, according to reports.
Video of Blake being shot several times in the back by police on Sunday caused an uproar in Kenosha.
Windows were smashed and cars at a dealership were set on fire in downtown Kenosha as the late-night protest turned violent. The County of Kenosha’s sheriff announced an emergency curfew in response to the late-night protests.
Two of the officers involved in Blake’s shooting were put on administrative leave. The Wisconsin Department of Justice was investigating the incident. Credit: Emma Leigh via Storyful
