Tear gas has been fired and a curfew imposed amid angry protests after police fatally shot a black man in a traffic stop 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, telling people to “be safe and to go home”.
Tensions in Minneapolis are high as the trial of a former officer accused of killing George Floyd takes place.
Minnesota Governor Tim Walz said he was “closely monitoring the situation” and praying for Mr. Wright’s family.
Hundreds of protesters chanting Daunte Wright’s name gathered late on Sunday outside the police headquarters in Brooklyn Center.
Tensions rose as police donned riot gear, and two police vehicles were pelted with stones and jumped on.
