BREAKING: Over Two Dozen Shots Fired at Minneapolis Riot

 BREAKING: Over Two Dozen Shots Fired at Minneapolis Riot

Destruction and rioting started back up in Minneapolis on Thursday after false reports of a fatal police shooting which turned out to be a suicide.

Police were approaching the man when he pulled out a gun and shot himself. Immediately, everyone blamed the police for his death, without bothering to wait for more information.

In Minneapolis, a man killed himself. Someone spread a false rumor this was a police shooting. Some people opportunistically started rioting/lotting. In order to rebut the rumor, the Minneapolis PD released a Twitter video of his suicide.

This is a bad time.
