WIDESPREAD rioting and looting has broken out in Minneapolis after police shot dead a black man 10 miles from where George Floyd was killed.
Daunte Wright, 20, was killed by a Brooklyn Center police officer shortly before 2pm on Sunday during a routine traffic stop.
Hundreds of people have gathered outside a nearby police station, with police firing teargas and flash bangs to disperse mobs, in the following days.
By around midnight on the day Wright was killed, the National Guard was on the scene and Brooklyn Center mayor Mike Elliott imposed a curfew from 1 am until 6 am.
Brooklyn Center’s curfew was later updated from 10pm to 6am.
According to a statement from the Brooklyn Center Police Department, officers pulled over Wright for a traffic violation.
When they discovered he had an outstanding warrant, they tried to take him into custody.
He got back into his car, and one of the officers shot him dead.
A female passenger in the car suffered “non-life-threatening injuries” and was transported to a local hospital, said the statement, which did not identify the woman.
