Protesters shut down Interstate 94 near downtown St. Paul

It quickly spread online and sparked several days of protests in the city where 54 percent of the population is black and more than 25 percent live in poverty.

Yanez "is an intelligent person, he has a lot of common sense", Dobratz said.

Meanwhile, the Minnesota Lynx basketball team wore special black warm-up shirts to their game against the Dallas Wings on Saturday night in honor of Castile, Sterling and the Dallas Police Department.

Yanez and Officer Joseph Kauser of the St. Anthony Police Department stopped Castile's auto in Falcon Heights, a suburb of St. Paul the department patrols.

Within an hour, protesters began throwing objects and shooting fireworks at officers, according to Star Tribune and St. Paul Police tweets.

I-94 reopened at around 1.30 a.m. CT (2.30 a.m. ET) and arrests are being made, St. Paul police tells CNN. Most of the others happened early Sunday in another part of St. Paul. She said she saw about 30 people being peacefully taken away by officers, who said they warned protesters they would be subject to arrest if they didn't disassemble.

His death came just one day after Alton Sterling, a black man, was shot and killed by police in Baton Rouge, La. Police say a Molotov cocktail was thrown at officers.

Law enforcement used crowd-control measures, including smoke and fired marking rounds similar to paintball rounds, said police spokesman Steve Linders. The high number of traffic stops without a major conviction proves that he was often profiled by police because of race.

Marchers protesting the shooting of Philando Castile by a police officer have caused a shutdown of Interstate 94 in both directions Saturday night.

Yanez had this to say later in the footage: "I told him not to reach for it!" She said some had been there for a day or more. "In the video, Diamond's 4-year-old daughter is watching from the back seat", Zuckerberg wrote Thursday evening. Please, I ask you to at all times remain peaceful in your expressions of concern regarding his death at the hands of the police.

The gunman who killed five police officers at a protest march had practiced military-style drills in his yard and trained at a private self-defense school that teaches special tactics, including "shooting on the move", a maneuver in which an attacker fires and changes position before firing again. Two civilians were also injured.

"When people call the police, they provide a description of somebody engaged in a crime".

The investigating officer closed the case just minutes after arriving at a strip mall. "You just get an increase in African-American contact with the police for minor incidents".

Mike Martin said he was trying to promote peace when he was pepper sprayed by a police officer on a pedestrian bridge.
