BROOKLYN CENTER, Minn. — The Twin Cities metro area was under a curfew and hundreds of Minnesota National Guard troops were in the streets to attempt to keep the peace on Monday night, a day after a police officer in nearby Brooklyn Center fatally shot a 20-year-old Black man during a traffic stop.

Daunte Wright’s death, which set off protests and unrest on Sunday night, was ruled a homicide by the Hennepin County Medical Examiner.

Protests were already underway Monday night in New York City, where protesters blocked roads and the Manhattan Bridge in solidarity.

Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz imposed a curfew from 7 p.m. until 6 a.m. Tuesday for three counties that include Brooklyn Center, Minneapolis, and the capital of St. Paul. Just over 500 members of the National Guard have been called in to patrol around the Twin Cities.
