Anti-police protests erupted in the US state of Minnesota after an officer killed a young black man after stopping his car for violating traffic rules on Sunday, about 16 km from the site of George Floyd’s death while in custody on a Minneapolis street in May.
Hundreds of angry protesters gathered outside the Brooklyn Center district police headquarters on Sunday evening, prompting police to fire rubber bullets.
Minnesota Governor Tim Walls said the 20-year-old was called Donta Wright by the police.
Minneapolis has been witnessing protests for days, coinciding with the trial of Officer Derek Chauvin, who pressed his knee on the neck of the black American Floyd for nearly nine minutes, resulting in his death.
