Violence spiraled out of control late Thursday night and Friday morning in Minneapolis as looters targeted businesses and set fires after US Marshals and local police shot and killed a suspect wanted for illegal possession of a firearm.
“The suspect, accused in a homicide, didn’t follow commands from the U.S. Marshal Service task force – made up of local law enforcement – and pulled out a gun during the attempted arrest, FOX 9 in Minneapolis reported, citing authorities. He was pronounced dead at the scene,” reports Fox News.
