Curfew in effect in Hennepin, Ramsey, Anoka, Dakota counties, by order of Gov. Walz


April 13, 2021


Gov. Tim Walz spoke at a press conference in Minneapolis, Minn., on Monday, April 12, 2021, announcing his sorrow at the death of 20-year-old Daunte Wright, and that there would be a 7pm curfew for much of the metro.

Gov. Tim Walz on Monday issued a curfew in Hennepin, Ramsey, Anoka and Dakota counties from 7 p.m. until 6 a.m. Tuesday in the wake of a night of unrest following the Sunday death of Daunte Wright, a 20-year-old Black man shot and killed by police in Brooklyn Center.

As they announced the curfews, state and city leaders tried to strike a balance: acknowledging that Wright's death had caused immense pain but also telling people they wouldn't tolerate violence.

"For those who choose to go out ... to exploit these tragedies for destruction or personal gain, you can rest assured that the largest police presence in Minnesota history in coordination will be prepared," Walz said at a news conference Monday afternoon.
