Mayor Jacob Frey issued a 10 p.m. curfew in Minneapolis on Tuesday afternoon following two days of protests in response to the police killing of Daunte Wright. 

Last night’s multi-county 7 p.m. curfew was met with hundreds of protesters outside of the Brooklyn Center Police Department. Activists and community members gathered to protest the police killing of Daunte Wright, a 20-year-old Black man. 

Kim Potter, a Brooklyn Center police officer, shot Wright after attempting to arrest him for having expired license plates. Both Potter and the department’s police chief, Tim Gannon, resigned Tuesday morning. 

The curfew will be in effect until 6 a.m. Wednesday, meaning that people may not travel on any public street or in any public place. 

People will be exempt if they are traveling to work, religious services or if they are seeking medical care. Media, law enforcement, emergency responders and community patrol organizations are exempt as well.
