Gas Used During Protests Over Fatal Police Shooting in Brooklyn Center

Protests erupted in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, on April 11, following the death of Daunte Wright after a police shooting earlier in the day.

Police announced an investigation into the incident on Sunday. A police statement said Wright was stopped for a traffic violation and was shot by an officer after re-entering the vehicle when officers tried to arrest him over an unrelated outstanding warrant. Wright was pronounced dead after his vehicle had traveled several blocks away.
