Protests are escalating in the town of Brooklyn Center where a police officer fatally shot a Black man, 20-year-old Daunte Wright, on Sunday.

Officers had pulled Wright over for a traffic violation. Since the shooting, crowds of protesters have gathered outside the Brooklyn Center Police Department, where officers in riot gear have formed a protective line and released gas irritants in attempts to disperse people, according to journalists at the scene.

Brooklyn Center Police Department released a statement earlier today on Daunte Wright death.

Before Wright died, he called his mother as police pulled him over while he was driving the car his family had given him two weeks earlier.

“He said they pulled him over because he had air fresheners hanging from his rearview mirror,” Daunte Wright’s mother said.
