WATCH: Reporters Insist There Was No Riot in Minneapolis

April 12, 2021

Riots and protests broke out across the city of Minneapolis on Sunday following the police shooting of 20-year-old Daunte Wright. Several local businesses have been "completely destroyed" by looters, according to the Star Tribune, and police were forced to use tear gas to disperse protesters who were throwing rocks at law enforcement.

When police chief Tim Gannon described the unrest as a "riot" during a press conference on Monday,  several reporters responded that "there was no riot."
