Protestors and police confront each other outside of the Target Center on Thursday, Oct. 10.

Tension has escalated between police and protesters outside President Donald Trump’s rally in Minneapolis Thursday night, resulting in police using pepper spray and tear gas to quell protests.

Around 9:30 p.m., protesters burned a pile of MAGA hats on the ground outside the Target Center, where the rally was held, chanting phrases like “Fascists aren’t welcome here.” 

Around 10 p.m., police used what appeared to be tear gas on protesters after the protesters blocked cars from leaving the venue and threw objects like rocks and traffic cones at cars.

Police formed a bicycle barricade to allow attendees of the rally to leave the venue. Protesters threw bottles at the barricade, and police responded by spraying them with what appeared to be pepper spray. 

This is a breaking news report. More information will be added as it becomes available.
