Squad car vandalized but mostly quiet night for Minnesota shooting protest


ST. PAUL -- Protesters remained in front of the Minnesota governor's residence Friday morning, continuing a vigil that began hours after a police officer shot and killed a 32-year-old black man in a Twin Cities suburb.

While that gathering was peaceful, St. Paul police reported that early Friday some people left the Summit Avenue site and went a block to Grand Avenue, where they broke windows in an unoccupied police car and damaged a business window.

"St. Paul officers responded to prevent further damage," a police statement said. "Chemical irritant and marking rounds were used to stop dangerous criminal activity. One arrest was made and the group dispersed."
