People in Minneapolis are going buck-wild and destroying cop cars, looting stores, and causing chaos after a police officer was involved in the shooting of a black man. The officer says the shooting was accidental and that he meant to use his taser, but accidentally grabbed the wrong item and fired a single bullet at a man. The officer is now on leave, as stated by BBC.
Tear gas has been fired and a curfew imposed amid angry protests after police fatally shot a black man in a traffic stop in the US city of Brooklyn Center, just north of Minneapolis.
The man has been identified by relatives as 20-year-old Daunte Wright.
