Protesters Set Minneapolis Police Precinct on Fire


As protests continue in Minneapolis, MN following the death of George Floyd, the Minneapolis Police 3rd Precinct was set on fire. The building was evacuated around 10 PM followed by protesters "forcibly" entering the building and igniting several fires inside. The City of Minneapolis said through their official Twitter account: "We're hearing unconfirmed reports that gas lines to the Third Precinct have been cut and other explosive materials are in the building. If you are near the building, for your safety, PLEASE RETREAT in the event the building explodes." 

Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey took to Twitter and said: "We are working with @MinneapolisFire to deliver resources and respond for a beloved neighborhood in our city. We all need to work together to ensure the safety of our friends, family, and Minneapolis residents. And right now working together means clearing the area."
