Demonstrators have gathered for a planned protest against Minneapolis police at a parade celebrating gay pride after police fatally shot a man.
Chopper 5 captured the protest, which occurred Sunday at the beginning of the Twin Cities Pride parade. Organizers had wanted no police at the event.
The parade paused as the group of protesters demonstrated ahead of it. Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey said before the parade that he wasn't marching to focus on the shooting.
Police on Saturday shot and killed a black man they say was firing a handgun as he walked outside in North Minneapolis. Some witnesses have disputed that the man had a gun. A demonstration was planned for Sunday afternoon at a police precinct headquarters and a vigil near the shooting scene was planned for the evening.
