BROOKLYN CENTER, Minn. โ€” Monday, April 19

Operation Safety Net says no arrests were made Sunday night as protests in Brooklyn Center continued for an eighth straight night.

A curfew went into effect in Brooklyn Center at 11 p.m. and expired at 6 a.m. Monday. A curfew was also in effect in Champlin Sunday into Monday morning.

Demonstrations have been happening outside the Brooklyn Center Police Department building each night since 20-year-old Daunte Wright was shot and killed by former officer Kim Potter on Sunday, April 11.

A citywide curfew has been issued for Brooklyn Center from 11 p.m. Sunday to 6 a.m. Monday as demonstrations continued for the eighth straight day outside the city's police station following the death of Daunte Wright.

Hundreds gathered outside the Governor's residence Sunday afternoon also calling for additional charges for Potter, as well as an end to Operation Safety Net, which has been assisting law enforcement during unrest in Brooklyn Center.
