ST. PAUL -- Gov. Tim Walz mobilized the Minnesota National Guard on Wednesday night after people looted downtown Minneapolis businesses, in the wake of a homicide suspect shooting himself.

Police released a graphic video, which showed the man's suicide, after a crowd gathered and believed it was the police who killed the suspect.

"The rumor was that we shot him," said John Elder, a Minneapolis police spokesman, but he said no officers fired a shot.
