Protesters Clash with Police

May 28, 2020

On the evening of 26 May 2020, police officers clashed with protesters in southern Minneapolis, Minnesota, during a demonstration against the death of an African American man in police custody the previous day. Violence broke out at the city’s third police precinct station — where a group of protesters vandalized a police vehicle, shattered the station’s glass front door and defaced the building. Officers in riot gear confronted the protesters and deployed tear gas canisters and non-lethal projectiles at the crowd. Protesters threw rocks and other objects at the officers. However, there were no reports of injuries. Earlier in the day, hundreds of protesters gathered near the intersection of 38th Street and Chicago Avenue S. — where four police officers detained the man who died in custody — many of whom peacefully marched to the police station, located more than 2 mi (3 km) from the arrest site.
