Protesters Shut Down Interstate 94 Near Downtown St. Paul
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Police have used smoke bombs to clear demonstrators blocking Interstate 94 in St. Paul during a protest sparked by the recent police killings of black men in Minnesota and Louisiana. The smoke was used just after midnight when about 200 protesters were in the roadway as police in riot gear slowly moved in. Police said several officers have been injured by rocks, firecrackers and other debris thrown by protesters Saturday night.
