Twins, Timberwolves, Wild postpone games in wake of shooting

Twins fan Zack Kellner of Minneapolis left Target Field after the team announced that the series opener against Boston was postponed Monday.

Monday was one of three times the Twins, Wild and Timberwolves were going to play at home on the same day this spring.

But a major pro sports day in the Twin Cities was quickly interrupted by safety and ethical concerns in the wake of the fatal shooting of a Black motorist, Daunte Wright, by a police officer Sunday in Brooklyn Center.

The Twins, with an afternoon game scheduled at Target Field against the Boston Red Sox, were the first to postpone as news of a curfew in Hennepin County percolated.
