After the protests broke out, they announced a curfew
A police chief on the outskirts of Minneapolis, Minnesota, claimed yesterday that a police officer had shot and killed an African American with the intent to shoot him with a stun gun instead of his gun.
Meanwhile, on Sunday night, a group of protesters and mourners gathered to protest against the death of 20-year-old Daunte Wright.
The mayor of Brooklyn Center Mike Elliott (Mike Elliott) ordered a curfew until 6 am. The head of the local school stated that the district will “turn to distance learning for prevention.”
Brooklyn Center Police Chief Tim Cannon said this was an “accidental discharge.”
Wright died on Sunday in an already tense metropolis. This is the trial of the first of four police officers who have been indicted for the death of George Floyd, an African American.
At the press conference, Gannon said that this was a mistake and released an image of the human body camera carried by the agent. In the video, three police officers were seen around the car. When an officer tried to handcuff Wright, a melee broke out and the officer shouted “Stun gun!”. Shot several times.
The police commander said: “This was an accidental discharge, leading to the tragic death of Mr. White.”
The mayor of Brooklyn Center Mike Elliott (Mike Elliott) called the incident a “great tragedy.”
The mayor said: “We will do everything we can to make justice possible and to make our community calm.”
Brooklyn Center is a city with a population of approximately 30,000 located on the northwestern border of Minneapolis.
Minnesota Governor Tim Waltz said on Twitter that he would pray for the Wrights.
Before the protests broke out, Wright’s mother, Katie Wright, asked the participants to mobilize peacefully and pay attention to the loss of her son.
“All these acts of violence, if they continue, all we have to do is to have a dialogue around the violence. Our mother told the crowd gathered in the center of Brooklyn, which is a city of about 30,000 people in northwest Minneapolis. We must debate why my son was killed for no reason.
He added: “We have to make sure that the debate is about him, not about the man who destroyed the police patrol car, because that will not bring my son back.” Some protesters jumped onto the patrol car and faced the police. The director of the Minnesota Department of Public Safety, John Harrington, said at a press conference that others marched to the local police station building and threw stones and other objects at the police. It said that on Monday, almost all the protesters dispersed at a ratio of 1:15.
Death in school shooting in Tennessee
Authorities said that in a conflict in a high school in Tennessee, police officers were involved. They came after receiving a report from the gunman, resulting in one death and one policeman injured.
The authorities only pointed out that one man died and the other was detained for investigation. The police said there were no casualties.
The Knoxville Police Department posted a message on Facebook that the officer responded to a report of a possible gunman at Austin-East Magnet High School around 3:15 pm.
The police detailed in their publication: “When approaching the person, he was shot.” “A Knoxville police officer was shot at least once and was taken to the hospital. His injuries were considered life-threatening. One The man was pronounced dead at the scene”.
The school became news in February last year after three students were shot dead in three weeks. According to a story published in Knoxville News Sentinel, the shooting did not occur inside the school. The administrator at the time said that students thought the art school was a safe place.
