51 arrested as Black Lives Matters protestors shut down I-94 West in Minneapolis

Hundreds gathered for a protest outside the Minneapolis Police Department 4th precinct headquarters, where Black Lives Matter activists have set up an encampment (including, seen here, people sleeping in chairs and on the floor at the entrance path and in the front entrance vestibule) starting at 5 pm on Monday, November 16, 2015 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Those gathered then marched along Plymouth Avenue and shut down the westbound lanes of I-94 West for several hours starting at 7 pm. Several dozen protestors remained after police issued multiple warnings to disperse, and 51 were arrested (43 adults and 8 juveniles).

The actions came in reaction to the shooting of 24-year-old Jamar Clark by Minneapolis Police on Sunday. Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges has asked the U.S. Justice Department for a civil rights investigation into the shooting.
