Daunte Wright protesters leak killer cop Kimberly Potter's home address online forcing Minnesota cops to erect fence and guard property: Veteran officer is expected to be charged TODAY following third night of national unrest

 The third night of Daunte Wright protests turned violent as demonstrators clashed with police in Minneapolis while Portland's police union building was set on fire during the riot.

At least 60 people were arrested at protests in Portland, Minneapolis, New York, Philadelphia and Chicago overnight on Tuesday.

Curfews had been in place for Brooklyn Center, Minneapolis, St. Paul, Crystal, Columbia Heights, New Hope and Maple Grove from 10pm local time, but had done little to stem the demonstrators. 


In Portland, at least 100 people descended on the Portland police union headquarters in North Portland where they set the building ablaze, shot fireworks and locked traffic - prompting police to declare a riot for the second night running.

Footage shows the Portland Police Association engulfed in flames before fire crews arrived to try and extinguish the blaze. 

Meanwhile, in Minneapolis, about 90 minutes before the 10pm local time curfew deadline, police declared protests outside the Brooklyn Center police station to be an unlawful assembly; pepper spray and flash bombs were used by officers in an attempt to disperse the crowd while demonstrators used umbrellas as shields.   

Demonstrators began gathering again Tuesday at the city's heavily guarded police headquarters, now ringed by concrete barriers and a tall metal fence, and where police in riot gear and National Guard soldiers stood watch. More than a 1,000 protestors had arrived by early evening. 

The protests turned violent over the death of Daunte Wright, a black man killed by veteran cop Kimberly Potter. Her home was barricaded Tuesday, with officers posted inside, as a group of protesters gathered at fences surrounding it. 

Wright's killing, just 10 miles from the scene of George Floyd's death last May in Minneapolis, led to unrest in Minnesota and nationwide. The trial of Derek Chauvin, the first of four police officers charged in Floyd's death, is ongoing in the city.

Outside the Brooklyn Center's heavily guarded police headquarters in Minneapolis, Tuesday, 'Murderapolis' was scrawled with black spray paint on a concrete barrier. 

'Daunte Wright! Say his name!' the crowd chanted. 'No justice, no peace! Prosecute the police!'

There were no reports of looting Tuesday.  

A group of protesters marched to the Brooklyn Center FBI building from the Brooklyn Center Police Department as the evening went on.

Minnesota State Patrol Colonel Matt Langer said at a midnight press conference: 'As the evening unfolded, the event devolved.' Officials said bricks and cans were thrown at cops. 

As the mayor spoke earlier on Tuesday, Wright's relatives and supporters assembled near the Minneapolis courthouse where Chauvin is standing trial, and recounted for reporters the anguish of his death at the age of 20.

Wright, who struggled with a learning disability and dropped out of high school, was remembered as a good-natured, loving man who worked multiple jobs to support his 2-year-old son.

Floyd's two brothers appeared at the news conference along with Floyd's girlfriend, Courteney Ross, who embraced Wright's mother, Katie, and said she had once taught Daunte Wright in school.

Floyd family lawyer, Ben Crump speaks during a press conference with Daunte Wright's and George Floyd's families, at the Hennepin County Government Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota on April 13. Tensions have soared over the death on April 11 of African American Daunte Wright near the Midwestern US city, a community already on edge over the ongoing trial of a policeman accused of killing another Black man, George Floyd

Wright's deadly encounter began when police pulled him over in his car for what they said was expired auto registration.

According to Gannon, officers then discovered a warrant for his arrest in their system. When Wright broke away from one officer and climbed back into his car in an apparent bid to flee, the second officer, since identified as Potter, accidentally drew her pistol instead of her Taser and opened fire, he said.

An autopsy found Wright was struck once in the chest. Potter can be heard on police video shouting: 'Holy shit, I just shot him.'

The car then rolled away with Wright still in the driver's until it struck another vehicle and came to a stop.

The recollections of Wright's mother and other relatives focused on his last moments.

Katie Wright said her son called her after he was pulled over, and that she offered to mediate with police over the phone. She said she heard police order her son, who seemed confused, out of his vehicle, followed by the sound of scuffling and an officer telling him to hang up the phone.

She said Wright's girlfriend, who was with him in the car, eventually picked up the phone and, amid cries and screams, told her he had been shot.

'She pointed the phone toward the driver's seat and my son was laying there, unresponsive,' Katie Wright recalled, weeping. 'That was the last time that I've seen my son.'

'You are hereby ordered to disperse,' an announcement played to the protesters said, warning that anyone not leaving would be arrested. The number of protesters then dropped rapidly over the next hour. 

The unrest had already continued for a second night Monday just hours after the Hennepin County medical examiner ruled Wright's death a homicide and said the cause was a gunshot wound to the chest. 

White veteran police officer Potter and her police chief boss both resigned from the force Tuesday. 

It is not yet clear what charges Brooklyn Center Police officer Potter will face over the death of the 20-year-old black man but multiple sources told KSTP they could be filed on Wednesday.
