A vast crowd of 100 to 200 people marched toward the Brooklyn Center Police Department near Minneapolis, Minnesota, on Sunday evening following an officer-involved shooting, NBC News reports.

Police fatally shot a black motorist during a Sunday traffic stop, sparking riots just miles from where George Floyd took his last breath in May.

Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz (D) identified the motorist as 20-year-old Daunte Wright.

What are the details?

The unruly crowd — which threw rocks and other objects at the department building — gathered outside the police department, prompting the state to mobilize its National Guard.

The outlet also noted that there were reports of shots fired in the area of the department as officers fired rubber bullets and tear gas at rioters.

“The front door of the Brooklyn Park Police Department … was struck by gunfire, shattering the glass, police said in a statement,” NBC News reported. “Brooklyn Park Police officers were not involved in the shooting but assisted Brooklyn Center Police with the ‘civil unrest’ that took place after, the department said.”

The damage wasn’t just contained to the department building, authorities said. Approximately 20 businesses were broken into and vandalized at a nearby shopping center.

According to reports, members of Wright’s family as well as friends were among the protesters who marched in the streets, carrying flags and signs that read, “Black Lives Matter.”

Authorities ordered a curfew through Monday morning.

USA Today reported on Monday that Minneapolis Mayor Mike Elliott is set to hold a news conference on the incident Monday morning at Brooklyn Center City Hall.

In a statement, Elliott said, “Our hearts are with (Wright’s) family, and with all those in our community impacted by this tragedy. While we await additional information from the BCA who is leading the investigation, we continue to ask that members of our community gathering do so peacefully, amid our calls for transparency and accountability.”

What do we know about the shooting?

Katie Wright, the victim’s mother, told reporters that she received a phone call from her son on Sunday afternoon telling her that police pulled him and his girlfriend over for reportedly having air fresheners dangling from the vehicle’s rearview mirror.

It is illegal to hang anything from rearview mirrors in Minnesota.

Katie said she told her son to put the officer on the phone so she could provide insurance information.

The last thing she heard was police telling her son to get out of the vehicle and demanding he refrain from running.

“I heard police officers say, ‘Daunte, don’t run,'” she recalled. The call ended, she said, and she immediately phoned back and reached her son’s girlfriend.

“A minute later I called, and his girlfriend answered, which was the passenger in the car, and said that he’d been shot,” Katie said.

In a statement, Brooklyn Center Police said that officer pulled a man over for a traffic violation on Sunday afternoon and discovered that he had an outstanding warrant. As police attempted to take the subject into custody, he reportedly attempted to get back into the vehicle. One officer shot the subject, who attempted to drive off. The subject was able to drive several blocks before striking another vehicle. The subject reportedly died at the scene.

In a Sunday night statement, Walz said, “I am closely monitoring the situation in Brooklyn Center. Gwen and I are praying for Daunte Wright’s family as our state mourns another life of a Black man taken by law enforcement.”

Parents Charged After Leaving Two-Year-Old Home Alone While Going Out Of State

Parents from South Carolina have been taken into custody after leaving their 2-year-old child at home alone as they went to New York, the Charleston Police Department said.

Authorities say that on November 17, close to 2 p.m., they arrived to a residence after receiving information about a toddler being by themselves in an apartment.

Court documents show that someone told police that the child’s father sent a text message indicating that he was in New York for business purposes.

Because the apartment complex couldn’t reach anyone inside of the apartment, they conducted an emergency walk-through.

Records state that a child was discovered asleep on a bed in the living room.

Authorities stated that the child woke up and wanted his empty water bottle. Besides a dirty pamper, the toddler was in good condition and was transported to a hospital through a foster care provider.

Police say that they attempted to contact the father and mother but were unable to do so.

Later, 24-year-old Donald Gekonge, the father of the child, reached out to the complex and talked to police. He reportedly told them that he had left at 6 a.m. that morning, and he was “only a few states away.”

Eventually, he stated that he was in New York for business, and he was unaware of who was caring for his toddler. However, he believed that it was the mother of the child, Darline Aldrich.

Then, later on, Gekonge’s story evolved even more. He admitted that Aldrich was in New York, as well, for an emergency.

Gekonge and Aldrich were apprehended on charges of unlawful conduct toward a child.

Gekonge’s bond was set at $50,000, and Aldrich’s bond was placed at $75,000.

Zion National Park’s response involved more than 20 search and rescue team members.

Background:

A 33-year-old man and 31-year-old woman, a married couple, had started their permitted 16-mile trip through the Narrows from the top-down on Tuesday, November 22. The man reported they became dangerously cold overnight and experienced symptoms consistent with hypothermia.

The pair stopped about a mile and a half from the north end of Riverside Walk (a paved trail that leads from the Temple of Sinawava to the Narrows). Early in the morning of November 23, the man continued on to get help while the woman remained. Park rangers encountered the man on Riverside Walk where other visitors were assisting him down the trail. Other visitors farther up the Narrows administered CPR to the woman before Zion Search and Rescue Team members arrived.
