Multiple instances of Black Lives Matter protests have erupted across the nation in response to the police involved shootings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile. What began as mostly peaceful protests have, in some cases, deteriorated into complete chaos Saturday evening.
According to Minneapolis’ Star Tribune, protesters have become unruly and shut down I-94 — a major interstate. Multiple reports of injured officers are surfacing on social media. Reports from local news sources say protesters have assaulted police officers with glass bottles, rocks, construction rebar and a variety of debris, resulting in serious injuries.
Police have responded with riot formations, tear gas, “stun grenades” and other forms of crowd control. The situation remains chaotic as the hour grows late.
In Baton Rouge, LA, just blocks away from the site where career criminal Alton Sterling was shot by police for resisting arrest, Baton Rouge police department officers have been forced to deploying rubber bullets and pepper spray to control the crowds, who continue to create havoc in the streets.
Other cities, including Chicago, Ferguson, and San Antonio have reported large BLM protests. Police report a random shooting at San Antonio police headquarters. Thankfully, no injuries were reported, but the suspect is still on the loose.
