Hundreds of protestors are back on the streets in the US state of Minneapolis after the fatal shooting of a black man on Sunday local time.

Daunte Wright, 20, was stopped for a traffic violation when an arresting officer opened fire.

He was killed mere miles from where George Floyd died last year.

Police have used tear gas and stun grenades to subdue protestors and the National Guard are on their way to provide additional support.
