Fireworks Set off in Brooklyn Center as Police Pursue Daunte Wright Protesters

Fireworks were discharged outside Brooklyn Center Police Department in Minnesota on April 13 as demonstrations over the death of Daunte Wright continued for a third consecutive night.

Protests began in Brooklyn Center after a police officer fatally shot Wright during a traffic stop on April 11. Police Chief Tim Gannon described the shooting as an “accidental discharge”, saying to reporters that the officer in question drew a handgun instead of a Taser.
