The story is being continuously updated

Brooklyn Center police say an officer fatally shot a driver Sunday, leading to some clashes between protesters and law enforcement. Here are the latest updates:

9:24 p.m.: A WCCO crew spotted several law enforcement vehicles, including Hennepin County Sheriff’s vans and armored trucks, headed towards the Brooklyn Center Police Department.

9:14 p.m.: Law enforcement are forming a human barricade outside of the Brooklyn Center Police Department, as more protesters gather.

8:19 p.m.: A WCCO crew at the scene is being told by activists that law enforcement is surrounding the area and “corralling” people in an apparent attempt to make mass arrests, like what happened last November during a protest that spilled onto Interstate 94 in Minneapolis.

8:01 p.m.: Protesters are continuing to push law enforcement back.

7:59 p.m.: Law enforcement has deployed tear gas into the crowd of protesters.


For non-Minnesotans, Brooklyn Center is the first suburb north of Minneapolis. Minneapolis is of course the city where George Floyd was murdered by then Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, who has been on trial for the past 2 weeks.




Yes, the fatally shot driver is Black.
