The shooting came hours after Democratic California Rep Maxine Waters told protesters to “get more confrontational” if Derek Chauvin is acquitted of murder charges in his trial over the death of George Floyd.
According to a statement from the Minnesota National Guard, around 4:20am, someone in “a light-colored SUV fired several shots” at a team of National Guard and Minneapolis Police Department members near Penn Avenue and Broadway.
As Waters joined the seventh consecutive night of protests in Brooklyn Center, she told reporters if ex-cop Chauvin isn’t found guilty of murdering Floyd, “we’ve got to stay on the street”.
She said: “We’ve got to get more active, we’ve got to get more confrontational.
“We’ve got to make sure that they know that we mean business.”
She reportedly said she plans to stay in Minnesota until Monday when closing arguments are expected in the Chauvin trial, according to New York Times reporter Nicholas Bogel-Burroughs.
