Protesters clashed with law enforcement in front of the Brooklyn Center, Minnesota police headquarters for the fourth consecutive night on Wednesday after the murder of 20-year-old black Daunte Wright on Sunday. The former former officer who shot him while stopping was charged with second-degree manslaughter on Wednesday.
Kim Potter, a 26-year veteran, was arrested and then released from prison a few hours later after issuing $ 100,000 in bonds.
Authorities said lawmakers, soldiers and officers were “shot Wednesday night with industrial-scale fireworks, spray paint, stones and other items”
Law enforcement officers accidentally used tear gas, CBS Minnesota reported. Some officers sprayed chemicals on protesters who approached the fence around the building.
Potter, 48, resigned from the Minneapolis suburban police department on Tuesday, along with the city’s police chief.
Police stopped Wright for leaking labels on Sunday and found he had an unfulfilled order. While the police tried to handcuff him, Wright jumped into his car. The former police chief said Potter thought he had grabbed his Taser, but instead pulled out his pistol and fired the fatal shot.
