KDRTV has established that the latest round of Minneapolis looting was not inspired by the police shooting of a black man
On Wednesday night, a huge crowd broke windows before looting stores in Minneapolis after allegations emerged that a black died after policed trailed him
However, it has turned out that the man who is a suspect in a murder case shot himself to avoid arrest
“When I got down here witnesses told me that a man that was wanted for a homicide at 2 o’clock earlier today was approached and did not want to be taken in and took his gun out and shot himself,” community activist KG Wilson told CBS Minnesota.
“We keep trying to tell the crowd this… but they [weren’t] listening at the time because of past distrust, which I understand.”
“But yes, we have seen the video with our own eyes that this man who actually, I’m told, killed somebody at 2 o’clock today was not wanting to be apprehended and shot himself,” Wilson added. “So, I need anybody watching this to stand down and do not go tearing up the city.”
