Protest Erupts Again Over Man killed by Minnesota Deputies
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Protesters faced off with officers in Minneapolis early Saturday over the shooting death of a man by members of a U.S. Marshals task force.
Photos from the scene following a vigil for 32-year-old Winston Boogie Smith Jr. show dumpster fires in the street and a line of officers standing guard.
Deputies fatally shot Smith on Thursday.
Authorities say Smith was wanted on a weapons violation and fired a gun before he was shot and killed.
Family and friends described Smith as a father of three who was often harassed by police.
Police said some people vandalized buildings and stole from businesses after the shooting Thursday.
Nine people were arrested.
