Lake Street in Minneapolis has reopened Friday after police cleared out protesters in Uptown overnight.

A 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS camera captured Minneapolis firefighters putting out smoldering dumpsters in the middle of the street near Girard Avenue. Protesters have gathered in the area since the shooting of Winston Smith earlier this month.

In an update Friday, police said they made four arrests. An update on damage has not yet been released.

Earlier Thursday, protesters blocked the street off to traffic using makeshift barriers.
