Tear gas fired at protesters after police shoot black man near Minneapolis – BBC NEWS

Tear gas has been fired and a curfew imposed amid angry protests after police fatally shot a black man when a car was pulled over in the US city of Brooklyn Center, just north of Minneapolis.

The man has been identified by relatives as 20-year-old Daunte Wright.

Brooklyn Center’s mayor issued a curfew that lasted until 06:00 (11:00 GMT), telling people to “be safe, go home”.

Tensions in Minneapolis are high as the trial of a former officer accused of killing George Floyd takes place.

A courtroom just 10 miles (16km) from the latest unrest will resume proceedings on Monday with the prosecution expected to begin wrapping up its case.
