There will be curfews between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m. in the cities of Brooklyn Center and Champlin in anticipation of a 7th consecutive night of protests over the police killing of Daunte Wright.

The two cities are the only ones to have called a curfew, with Brooklyn Center expecting another demonstration outside its police department.

On Friday night, police initially stood back from the fencing surrounding the precinct, before moving in swiftly and suddenly, arresting 136 people in total.

There has been much more notice of Saturday night's curfew in Brooklyn Center than on Friday, when the curfew was declared just minutes before 11 p.m.

There has been a regular curfew in Champlin, which is where Kim Potter, the former Brooklyn Center officer who shot Wright, lives.

KSTP reports there have been barricades, fencing, and around-the-clock police presence around Potter's home. 

Champlin's curfew is expected to stay in place on Sunday too, with the city reevaluating it on Monday.

There are no curfews in Minneapolis and St. Paul, which has been the case since Wednesday.
