24 Arrests as Protesters Gather at Brooklyn Center Police Department for Fourth Night

Twenty-four people were arrested in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, on a fourth night of protests following the police shooting of Daunte Wright.

Police said deputies, troopers and officers were “shot at” with “industrial-sized fireworks, spray paint, rocks, and other items,” though local reports said the scenes at the local police department were generally calmer.

Public safety officials issued multiple dispersal warnings on Wednesday before a curfew began.

Video posted on Instagram by @tierrys_boy shows officers separated from protesters by a metal fence surrounding the police department.

Demonstrations began in Brooklyn Center after a police officer fatally shot Daunte Wright during a traffic stop on April 11. The officer involved, Kim Potter, was charged with second-degree manslaughter on April 14, according to media reports. Credit: tierrys_boy via Storyful
