According to the leadership of the police of the Minneapolis suburb, Dante Wright has shot accidentally.
Hundreds of people have gathered outside a police station in Minnesota to protest the fatal shooting of a man by a police officer.
Police in Brooklyn Center, a suburb of Minneapolis, used gas canisters and stun grenades to disperse the crowd after starting a new night curfew.
Dante Wright, a 20-year-old African-American man, was killed on Sunday when police stopped his car for a check.
Brooklyn Center Police Chief Tim Gannon said a female police officer accidentally shot Wright even though she wanted to use a stun gun, which is considered a non-lethal weapon.
The State Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is investigating the incident.
The shooting police officer, who has 26 years of experience, was placed on administrative leave.
