Police reportedly used tear gas, flash-bang grenades and fired rubber bullets at people protesting the killing of George Floyd by Minneapolis police on Tuesday evening.
At a Target department store parking lot, protesters improvised barricades out of shopping carts to take cover.
Here are some photos from later in the evening:
