For the second time in three months, Minneapolis has found itself the scene of looting and property damage amid wider calls nationally for action against police brutality.

The spark for Wednesday's civil unrest appeared to the death by suicide on Nicollet Mall of a Black man suspected of an earlier homicide at a parking ramp, with false rumors spreading on social media suggesting he had been killed by police.

There also remains anger over the police shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin, followed by the subsequent killing of two protesters by a teenager with alleged ties to white militia.

There were several businesses on Nicollet Mall and in other areas of downtown that suffered property damage, with looting also spreading to a few other areas of the city.

Among those hit was Brit's Pub – which suffered a fire – and the Target on Nicollet Mall, with the company issuing the following statement to BMTN: "Earlier this evening, a group of people entered the Target store on Nicollet Mall, stole merchandise and damaged several parts of the store.

"Our first priority was keeping our team members and guests safe, and I can share that no one was hurt. We closed the store early, are inspecting the damage and plan to reopen as soon as possible."
