Michael McDowell, 22, center, and Jie Wronski-Riley, 18, right, activists with Black Lives Matter Minneapolis, and other protesters face off with police on an entrance ramp to the westbound lanes of I-94 West, which protesters shut down for several hours starting at 7 pm on Monday, November 16, 2015 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Several dozen people remained after police issued multiple warnings to disperse, and 51 were arrested (43 adults and 8 juveniles).
McDowell and Wronski-Riley were among those arrested.
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.
