Protests have broken out near the US city of Minneapolis after the Police fatally shot a young Black man Duante Wright.
Police used tear gas and flash bangs to disperse the crowd at Brooklyn Center.
The 20-year-old black man’s mother, Katie Wright said earlier on Sunday evening, April 11, 2021, that he called her to say he had been pulled over by Police and she heard Officers tell her son to put his phone down.
She added that one of the Officers ended the call.
Soon after, her son’s girlfriend told her he had been shot.
The shooting comes as former Police Officer Derek Chauvin is on trial for the murder of George Floyd, a black man from Minneapolis.
