Daunte Wright shooting protests live stream: National Guard deployed

BROOKLYN CENTER, Minn. — The Twin Cities metro area was under a curfew and hundreds of Minnesota National Guard troops were in the streets to attempt to keep the peace on Monday night, a day after a Brooklyn Center police officer fatally shot a 20-year-old Black man during a traffic stop.

The death of Daunte Wright, which set off protests and unrest on Sunday night, was ruled a homicide by the Hennepin County Medical Examiner.

Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz imposed a curfew from 7 p.m. until 6 a.m. Tuesday for three counties that include Brooklyn Center, Minneapolis, and the capital of St. Paul. Just over 500 members of the National Guard have been called in to patrol around the Twin Cities.

A candlelit memorial for Wright, including a raised fist statue, was erected where he was shot Monday night.
