Curfew orders again Wednesday night in some Twin Cities suburbs

The curfew orders do not include Minneapolis.

A curfew order is in effect for a handful of cities for a third consecutive night Wednesday, though Minneapolis and St. Paul are not under curfew this time around. 

Brooklyn Center officials have ordered a curfew from 10 p.m. Wednesday until 6 a.m. Thursday. Per usual, people coming and going from work, the media and anyone experiencing an emergency are exempt from the curfew. 

The 10 p.m. curfew is also in place for Brooklyn Park

Champlin has a curfew in effect from 9 p.m. until 6 a.m. The city is home to now-former Brooklyn Center police officer Kim Potter, who has been charged with second-degree manslaughter for fatally shooting Daunte Smith on Sunday. 

New Hope and Crystal have not announced a curfew (as of this writing), and Robbinsdale is simply encouraging residents to be home by 10 p.m.. 

Thank you again for staying home last night and the night before. There will be no curfew declared for tonight in the City of Robbinsdale," the city announced. "Extra patrols have been scheduled for the rest of this week and will continue to focus on keeping our community safe. Even though there is no curfew tonight, we request you stay home after 10pm if you can. The City will continue to monitor the situation and will notify the public if anything changes." 

We'll update this story if any other cities enact a curfew order.
