‘Unlawful assembly’ declared, pepper spray fired as protesters besiege Brooklyn Center police department in defiance of curfew

An hour and 45 minutes after the 7 pm curfew went into effect, police issued a final “unlawful assembly” warning and deployed crowd control weapons. Some of the activists outside – carrying shields and umbrellas and wearing helmets – responded by throwing fireworks and smothering gas canisters with traffic cones.

A “wall” made up of concrete barriers and chain-link fence was set up around the police station earlier in the day, and appears to have been effective at keeping the demonstrators away.
