A 20-year-old black man dies when a policeman mistakes for a stun gun and fires a pistol
A 20-year-old black man, Dante Wright, was shot dead by police at the Brooklyn Center near Minneapolis, Minnesota. The policeman tried to stop him with a taser gun (stun gun) when a man tried to get in a car and escape when he asked him about his duties on suspicion of a traffic violation, but he mistakenly fired a pistol. The shot man ran a car for a while, after which he was confirmed dead.
About a year ago in Minneapolis, a black man, George Floyd, was suffocated when he was detained by a police officer. The trial in this case is just underway. Floyd’s death triggered protests and Black Lives Matter activities across the United States.
Whatever the circumstances, the black man was killed by the police again. People mourning the dead man gathered at the Brooklyn Center, and demonstrators gathered in front of the police station to protest and collided with police. The police reportedly used tear gas to suppress it.
In response to this situation, a curfew was issued on the night of the 12th in Minneapolis and the surrounding area. The Timberwolves vs Nets, MLB Minnesota Twins vs Boston Red Sox, and NHL Minnesota Wild vs St. Louis Blues matches have also been cancelled.
Upon canceling the match, Wolves has announced the following releases. “The tragic event that killed the victim brought us back to sadness. After consulting with the league and local officials, we thought it was the best choice to postpone the match against Nets tonight. Timberwolves and Lynx would like to extend our deepest condolences to Dante Wright’s family. “
