The city of Minneapolis, Minnesota has been troubled, to say the least.
The otherwise quiet midwestern town has been thrust into the national spotlight several times over the course of the last year, most notably after local police officers killed George Floyd by kneeling upon him until he suffocated.
Now, another police-involved death is receiving national attention, and sending the city once again into turmoil.
Dozens of protesters were arrested overnight in Minneapolis as they demanded more answers into Wednesday night’s fatal police shooting of 23-year-old Dolal Bayle Idd.
The protests and arrests, which were seen by a 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS crew, came after the body camera footage of the deadly traffic stop was released.
The arrests happened in downtown Minneapolis.
According to officials with the city, 15 people were booked for probable cause riot and 21 people were cited and released.
In south Minneapolis, about 100 people gathered at the gas station where Idd was killed to honor his life.
Police released body camera footage from the incident, but locals felt as though the additional information was troubling.
