As the evening wore on in Minneapolis, the protests showed very few signs of abating.

CNN correspondent Josh Campbell, in the Minneapolis scene, described the scene as the crowd continued to grow.

“A member of this community threw stones at the window and shouted at the people, ‘Don’t do this in my community.’ “Not everyone is protesting behind us. Some are trying to keep the peace,” he said.

The crowd was there all afternoon and it looks like there are more people tonight than last night.

Several large fires are still active, including a car that was driven and the air is thick with thick smoke and tear gas.

Earlier, police in riot gear stormed a rally on Friday, removing hundreds of protesters by truck. The protesters have since been taken down by protesters.

Police are on the roof, throwing tear gas into the street, Campbell said. Protesters hurled stones and glass bottles, exploded firecrackers and used lasers to point at police officers as it got dark.
