Police in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, declared a demonstration in its city to be an “unlawful assembly” on Tuesday night.

Earlier on Tuesday, the city announced that it would be enforcing a curfew from 10 p.m. on Tuesday to 6 a.m. on Wednesday, but law enforcement began declaring the scene unlawful nearly an hour and a half before the curfew was supposed to go into effect. The demonstrations in reaction to the Sunday police-involved fatal shooting of 20-year-old Daunte Wright have been taking place each evening since then.

Footage from the scene shared by a producer for Minnesota’s NBC 12 shows an officer deploying an aerosol against the demonstrators from behind a fence.

In another video, shared by Daily Caller chief video director Richie McGinniss, law enforcement can be heard over a loudspeaker telling people to “immediately disperse.” Video from the journalist also shows fireworks going off in the area.

A group of individuals who were kneeling was rushed and detained by police, McGinniss says.

Lauren Blanchard, a Fox News correspondent, posted on Twitter that police were warning media to leave the area, as well. She said they observed multiple armed protesters.

Bodycam footage of a Sunday incident shows former Officer Kim Potter shooting Wright after yelling “taser, taser, taser!” She resigned from her post on Tuesday, according to a statement from her union.
