December 30, local time, police in Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States, shot and killed a man in a gun exchange.
The New York Times said on December 30 that this was the first time that the police in Minneapolis had been killed after Freud’s death.
In May this year, Ming City Policeman Drake Shawan “locked his throat” and died of a black man, becoming the fuse for the “Black Life is also Expensive” (BLM) protest demonstration in the United States.
Although the details of the case have not been disclosed, hundreds of local residents gathered to demonstrate at the scene of the crime against the sub-zero wind.
Some people set fires to warm, and others threw snowballs at the police, demanding more information.
According to a report by the local branch of CBS on the evening of the 30th, Ming City police officers pulled the dead aside at 6:15 p.m., and then the two sides exchanged fire.
Medaria Arradondo, the police chief of Ming City, said that witnesses confirmed that the deceased shot first and then killed on the spot.
No police officers were injured.
The sheriff said that the man (the deceased) stopped by the police was a felony suspect, but he did not know what the deceased committed.
Regarding the racial issue that people are most concerned about on social networks, a police spokesman said that he did not know the race of anyone in the case.
Aladdando called on everyone to “calm and restrain” and wait for the truth to come out, and promised to release law enforcement videos as soon as possible, possibly on Thursday (31st).
However, protesters have quickly gathered outside the gas station next to the crime scene.
Because the weather is too cold, there is a fire in life to keep warm.
Liz Sawyer, a reporter of the local media Star Tribune, tweeted at the scene that the organizers of the demonstration asked the crowd to give up the intersection so that they could organize the parade, but a huge fire had already been lit up at the intersection.
Subsequently, about half of the demonstrators went to George Freud Memorial Square.
According to Fox News, some demonstrators abused the police, threw snowballs at them, and asked for more information.
At 1 a.m., the local temperature dropped below minus 12 degrees, and most of the demonstrators left the scene.
The scene of the crime was less than one mile from the location of Freud’s death.
On May 25 this year, George Freud, an African-American man, was “kneeling down” to death.
Prosecutors charged Drake Shawan with second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter, and the remaining three police officers assisted and abetted second-degree murder, as well as assisted and abetted second-degree manslaughter.
However, they all dismissed the charges, and all three except Shawan were released on bail.
After Freud’s death, the city of Minneapolis called for the abolition of police funds.
This month, the City Council passed a budget to transfer $8 million in police funds to violence prevention and mental health projects.
