Crowds of mourners and protesters gathered in a Minneapolis suburb where the family of a 20-year-old man said he died after being shot by police before getting back into his car and driving away, then crashing several blocks away. The family of Daunte Wright said he was later pronounced dead.
The fatal shooting of Daunte Wright, 20, during a Brooklyn Center traffic stop Sunday led to protests and looting that spilled over to Minneapolis. National Guard troops arrived just before midnight as several businesses around a Walmart were completely destroyed, including Foot Locker, T-Mobile and a men's clothing store.
For some men at Turning Point, where George Floyd attended a 90-day treatment program in 2017, the focus on his drug use is an example of how chemical dependency among African Americans can be disproportionately stigmatized and used to justify their mistreatment.
