A man was shot to death as violent protests over the death of a black man in police custody rocked Minneapolis for a second straight night Wednesday, with protesters looting stores near a police precinct and setting fires, Time reports.
“Justice historically has never come to fruition through some of the acts we’re seeing tonight, whether it’s the looting, the damage to property or other things,” Police Chief Medaria Arradondo said in an interview with KMSP-TV.

Firefighters were attacked when responding to the autozone fire earlier, so it does not appear they are responding here.#minneapolisriots
