Brooklyn Center renews curfew Sunday night
Brooklyn Center Mayor Mike Elliott has renewed the city’s curfew in anticipation of more protests Sunday night.
The curfew goes into effect at 11 p.m. and expires at 6 a.m. Sunday.
Exceptions include people traveling to and from work or religious services; law enforcement; people seeking medical help, emergency services or fleeing a dangerous situation; recognized community groups authorized to provide aid; the press; and people experiencing homelessness.
According to the news release, advance notifications will be issued an hour, 30 minutes and 15 minutes before the curfew goes into effect.
Sunday’s curfew comes ahead of the eighth night of curfews in response to the killing of Daunte Wright. The city issued the same curfew Saturday, and only one person was arrested despite a sizeable crowd staying outside the Brooklyn Center Police Station well past 11 p.m.
