Despite widespread curfews, freezing temperatures, and snow, thousands of Black Lives Matter activists took to the streets of Brooklyn Center, a Minnesota suburb, for the third night to protest the shooting of Daunte Wright.

The protesters, carrying shields (marked with ACAB - All Cops Are Bastards) and chanting Wright's name and "Black Lives Matter" surrounded the police station, prompting law enforcement to break up the "unlawful assembly," which some might dare to call a 'riot'.

Police demanded "leave the area now" as they fired smoke and gas grenades into the crowd...

When the crowd refused to disperse, the police moved in...

The protesters peacefully threw objects at the police...

But eventually began to disperse.
