Protesters and police clashed in Minnesota and Oregon during a second night of demonstrations over the police killing of a young Black man in a Minneapolis suburb.

Brooklyn Center, Minnesota Police fired flash-bang grenades and tear gas to break up a crowd that launched bottles, fireworks and bricks as protesters defied a curfew. Police in Portland, Oregon declared a riot last night, as protesters filled the streets over Daunte Wright’s killing.

A crowd of around 200 broke windows and tore down light fixtures while trying to get into a government building. Law enforcement responded with rubber bullets and flashbang grenades as officers pushed the crowd into the street.
