Protesters were arrested in Minneapolis after marching down city streets, spray painting local buildings, and shooting off fireworks, including some allegedly directed at police. The group also appears to have set nearby fires, said police spokesman John Elder. Thirteen women and one man were arrested for "probable cause riot," and one of the women was also charged with fourth degree assault.
The group was carrying a sign saying "America is Over" as part of a protest against police brutality before the arrests, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
More than 300 protesters marched through Portland, some of them brandishing what appeared to be rifles and pistols, according to law enforcement authorities. While some chanted anti-Trump slogans, the march appeared to be a continuation of the daily demonstrations that Portland has had since the killing of George Floyd by Minneapolis police in May.
In downtown Los Angeles, the LAPD declared an unlawful assembly as demonstrators tried to march onto the 10 Freeway. Authorities responding to a report of shots fired and a possible stabbing found a man with a head wound. He was transferred to a hospital, according to LAPD spokesman Tony Im.
Seattle police had made about eight arrests for pedestrian interference, obstruction, assault on an officer, reckless driving and criminal mischief. Police gave an order to disperse in the city's Capitol Hill neighborhood.
