Looks like Minneapolis could be going up in a ball of flames again.
Crowds of angry protesters are now flooding the streets after a 20-year-old man name Daunte Wright was shot by local police during a traffic stop.
The mob of people, many are carrying “BLM” signs, are getting extremely riled up, yelling at the press and police officers, who are fully equipped in riot gear, clearly ready for a big confrontation.
It now looks like riots are breaking out.

According to a witness who was in the vehicle with Wright, the police shot the young man after it was discovered he had a warrant and had reentered his vehicle during the arrest.
But keep in mind, it’s still early and the story is still developing.
Brooklyn Center police stopped a car for a “traffic violation” in the 6300 block of Orchard Avenue shortly before 2 p.m. Sunday, according to a news release issued by the Brooklyn Center Police Department.
When officers found the driver had an outstanding warrant, they attempted to take the man into custody outside the vehicle, the news release said.
“At one point as officers were attempting to take the driver into custody, the driver re-entered the vehicle. One officer discharged their firearm, striking the driver. The vehicle traveled several blocks before striking another vehicle. Officers in pursuit and responding medical personnel attempted life-saving measures, but the person died at the scene,” the press release said.
A woman who was a passenger in the vehicle suffered injuries that weren’t life-threatening during the crash and was taken to North Memorial Health Hospital in Robbinsdale.
People in the other vehicle were not injured.
Brooklyn Center officers wear body cameras and police say they believe those cameras and dash cameras were activated.
People congregated at the intersection of 63rd Avenue North and Lee Avenue North to protest the shooting, which is being investigated by the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension.
Several demonstrators jumped on police vehicles and attempted to throw bricks through the windows of the cars.
Katie Wright told media that she was the man’s mother. She said his name was Daunte Wright and he was 20 years old.
This looks like yet another situation that’s going to open up a huge discussion in this country.
It’ll certainly be interesting to see how the Biden administration handles this.
Let’s hope that nobody gets hurt and that police can keep things calm.
