Police scuffled with activists as they moved to clear out a homeless encampment on the Near North side of Minneapolis Thursday morning. For now, the settlement, about two dozen tents, remains. Here, residents sat around a camp fire.

An attempt by the city of Minneapolis to clear a homeless encampment Thursday morning led to a violent clash between police and civilians guarding the camp.

Five people were arrested and five officers suffered minor injuries, according to police.

More than 100 people showed up at the encampment at 205 N. Girard Av. in response to several activists' social media accounts warning that the city of Minneapolis planned to clear the empty lot where about 20 people live in tents.
