Minnesota is once again in chaos after a police-involved shooting that left one man dead in the small city Brooklyn Center, just north of Minneapolis.
The National Guard has now been deployed as riots and looting broke out in both Brooklyn Center and downtown Minneapolis in the wake of the shooting of 20-year-old Daunte Wright on Sunday.
As Fox News reports:
The Minnesota National Guard was activated to quell what devolved into violent demonstrations over the fatal officer-involved shooting of 20-year-old Daunte Wright earlier Sunday in the city of Brooklyn Center, located in Hennepin County, on the border of Minneapolis.
A citywide curfew was issued by Brooklyn Center Mayor Mike Elliott until 6 a.m. CT Monday. About 500 people had gathered overnight outside of a police precinct in the city and clashed with officers…
In a statement, Brooklyn Center Police said that officers had stopped an individual shortly before 2 p.m. Sunday. After determining the driver had an outstanding warrant, police tried to arrest him. But the driver reentered the vehicle and drove away, police said. An officer fired at the vehicle, striking the driver. Police said the vehicle traveled several blocks before crashing into another vehicle. A female passenger sustained nonlife-threatening injuries.
A number of videos are already circulating showing the chaos that has engulfed the two cities:
