U.S. Marshals: 1 man dead during arrest attempt in Minneapolis

In case there's any remaining doubt that some woke mouthpieces are far more interested in the acts of protesting and rioting than the people they're supposedly standing up for, let's have a look at a video of one protester who hit the streets of Minneapolis Thursday night after USA marshals fatally shot 32-year-old Winston Boogie Smith, who was wanted for being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Members of the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force were trying to arrest Smith on a warrant for allegedly being a felon in possession of a gun, according to authorities.

While some members of the crowd shouted expletives at the police on Thursday, overall the crowd remained peaceful. "I don't know exactly what happened". The state investigators also said evidence indicates Smith fired his gun, saying a handgun and spent cartridge were found inside the auto. At around 2 a.m., there was still a large police presence in the area, with footage showing a vehicle surrounded by law enforcement and additional arrests being made.

That person died at the scene.

The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension tweeted that their agents were en route to the shooting scene.

The Minneapolis Police Department said it was not involved in the incident. A woman who was in the auto with the suspect sustained minor injuries from shattered glass, the statement said.

Waylon Hughes, a close friend of Smith, told reporters that Smith loved music, writing comedy skits and posting them on social media. Hughes said he didn't know Smith to carry a gun, and Hopkins also said she didn't know that he had one. However, the demonstrations spiralled out of control and eventually led to stores being looted and dumpsters being set on fire, according to Fox News.

The suspect was fatally shot after drawing a handgun and refusing to cooperate.

An investigator goes through the scene of crash believed to be part of an officer involved shooting on the top of a parking ramp in Minneapolis, Thursday June 3, 2021.

Tensions in Minneapolis already had risen Thursday after crews removed concrete barriers that blocked traffic at a Minneapolis intersection that has become a memorial to Floyd.

Former Minneapolis Officer Derek Chauvin has been convicted of murder and manslaughter in Floyd's death, and three other officers await trial on aiding and abetting charges. Former Brooklyn Centre Officer Kim Potter is charged with manslaughter in Wright's death.
