Minnesota National Guard Fires On Brooklyn Center BLM Rioters

Minnesota National Guard was deployed in Brooklyn Center, Minneapolis after hundreds of Black Lives Matter protesters looted and rioted into the early hours Monday after a black man was shot dead while trying to flee arrest just 10 miles from where George Floyd died.

The fatal shooting of 20-year-old Daunte Wright in Brooklyn Center came as the Twin Cities was already in a state of high alert over the trial of ex-cop Derek Chauvin, charged with Floyd’s murder last May. 

Daunte Wright

Daunte Wright was shot and killed after he tried to drive away from officers who pulled him over for an outstanding warrant, police said.

It was not immediately clear what the warrant was for.

His vehicle traveled several blocks before striking another vehicle.

His girlfriend sustained non-life-threatening injuries during the crash.

Police said Brooklyn Center officers wear body cameras and they also believe dash cameras were activated during the incident.

The department said it has asked the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension to investigate.

BLM Pounced

Within hours of Wright’s 2 p.m. fatal shooting, at least 500 Black Lives Matter protesters/rioters had taken to the streets.

According to the Star Tribune — many of the BLM mob looted and trashed up to at least 20 stores.

“Hey! They’re coming!” a man was heard yelling on one video that captured several people running out of a looted store with their hands full of stolen items as nearby car horns repeatedly honked.

Rioters carried Black Lives Matter banners through the streets.

The BLM protesters/rioters started throwing rocks and other projectiles at officers as they jumped on top of police vehicles.

Police fought back against the violent protesters with tear gas, flashbangs, and rubber bullets.

“It feels like we’re in a war zone,” one woman said as she filmed live.

At least one bullet was fired at a police station, shattering the front door but not injuring anyone, police told Kare11.

At about 11:30 p.m., Brooklyn Center police declared the crowd an unlawful assembly and said anyone who remained — including journalists — would be arrested, Minnesota Public Radio said.

Minnesota National Guard 

The Minnesota National Guard was deployed and arrived just before midnight, the Star Tribune said — with officials announcing that more Minnesota National Guard troops would be arriving throughout Monday to help quell further violence.

Brooklyn Center Mayor Mike Elliott also announced a curfew in the city until 6 a.m. Monday. 

“We want to make sure everyone is safe. Please be safe and please go home,” he said in a tweet.

Elliott said the community is “filled with grief.”

“Our hearts are with his family, and with all those in our community impacted by this tragedy,” he said.

Gov. Tim Walz said he was “closely monitoring the situation,” and was “praying for Daunte Wright’s family as our state mourns another life of a Black man taken by law enforcement.”

The Minnesota National Guard was called in after looting became widespread late Sunday into early Monday.

But the BLM looting wasn’t just confined to Brooklyn Center — a city of about 30,000 people located on the northwest border of Minneapolis.

But the rioting, looting, and arson spilled into north and south Minneapolis as well.

Several businesses around a Walmart were completely destroyed, including a Foot Locker, a T-Mobile, and a New York men’s clothing store.

Minnesota Department of Public Safety Commissioner John Harrington said at a press conference early Monday that there would be heavy police and Minnesota National Guard presence throughout the Twin Cities for the next few days.

Noting the ongoing Chauvin trial, Harrington stated:

“You will see a robust assortment of Minnesota National Guard, state and local police departments working together over the next two or three days. Any further civil unrest that may come from the Brooklyn Center officer-involved shooting.”

Brooklyn Center Schools Were Closed

“I haven’t entirely processed the tragedy that took place in our community and I’m prioritizing the safety and wellbeing of our students, families, staff members, and community members,” district superintendent Carly Baker said in a statement.

“We know our community experienced trauma and we need the time and space to process.

  1. All these thug animals want is to steal crap. They don’t give two shits about black lives. They’re a piss poor excuse for humanity. They live at the bottom of the food chain.

  2. I just do NOT UNDERSTAND why his BLACK PRIVILEGE was not honored by the police!

    Cops are only allowed to shot white people!!

    NEVER a black person that was exercising his RIGHT TO UNACCOUNTABILITY FOR HIS OWN ILLEGAL ACTIONS!

  3. some day soon WE WILL RETURN to the timeless “SHOOT TO KILL” rioters and looters.

    And ARRESTING AGENT PROVOCATEURS posing as news reporters and charge them under the Geneva Conventions!

  4. Looters should be shot. Any proprietor that shoots someone who is looting their establishment should be applauded.

  5. Just ANOTHER smart ass black that thinks rules/laws don’t apply to them and then the morons step up and back his actions as they commit crimes from people that had ZERO to do with the black being killed….displays their I.Q.’s which are about 3 points BELOW a banana

  6. […] In no way am I saying Daunte Wright deserved to die. It was a horrific shooting by an ill-trained female Police officer who, even if it was “by accident” should be held accountable. But to push the narrative that Daunte Wright was some babe in the woods is a blatant disregard to the truth. But if this Police Officer should be held accountable for Daunte’s appalling death. Then the media knowingly omitting the facts must also be held accountable for the BLM  violence, rioting, looting, and arson that has taken place over the past two nights in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota.  […]
