Police used smoke against protesters in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, to disperse a crowd outside the city’s police department as demonstrations over the death of Daunte Wright were held for a third consecutive night.
Demonstrations began in Brooklyn Center after a police officer fatally shot Daunte 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.
