The Minnesota branch of left-wing group Black Lives Matter is potentially mobilizing after the fatal shooting of Ricky Cobb III by a state trooper. At this moment, we still don't know many details that led to the 2 AM shooting, but Cobb had an arrest warrant for a felony charge and resisted arrest. The event unfolded this morning on I-94 in the Twin Cities and led to the freeway shutting down on Monday morning as BCA investigated.
BLM MN is holding a candlelight vigil tonight (July 31st) in North Mississippi Regional Park in Minneapolis. We assume that it will be peaceful, but BLM's reckless Facebook promotion states that Cobb was "murdered" by State Troopers.
