Fires raged through the night in Minneapolis after a group of demonstrators swarmed a police station, which officers had been ordered to abandon as protests intensified in a city rocked after a custodial death of black man.
Demonstrators breached a door and entered the Minneapolis Police Department’s station as fires spread, resulting in destruction.
Angry demonstrations flared in Minneapolis for a third consecutive day as protesters torched a Minneapolis police station Thursday night and protests spread to nearby St. Paul. The unrest was sparked by the death of George Floyd, a handcuffed black man who pleaded for air as a white police officer kneeled on his neck. Four police officers were suspended from service connection with the incident.
