Enters its third week ABC's Alex Perez has the latest on the investigation. Overnight protests erupted in Brooklyn senator or a suburb of Minneapolis after a fatal police shooting of a black man during a traffic stop the Minnesota National Guard deployed. Police deploying tear gas to clear the crowds vote. I've spent their day. The incident beginning just before 2 PM on Sunday when officers pulled the car over for a traffic violation. According to the Brooklyn center police department the driver who had an outstanding warrant the try to get back in the vehicle while officers were making an arrest. An officer then shot the driver the car driving for several blocks before crashing into another vehicle.

His family telling ABC news that he was a good kid and loved being a father to his son Dante junior. Seen in this photo being held by Wright's brother at the protests. Call me about why root for a team that he is getting pulled over I don't believe. An example why did you get a hold over you and Obama from getting air freshener hanging from the there I don't mind everybody out here's CN didn't screaming and yelling yeah why animal that's it. Ellis brain ABC's Alex for as his live in Minneapolis just miles away from where. The shooting and those protests broke out Alex things got pretty tense overnight. In Brooklyn center what does seem like there today and and in Minneapolis itself where the dared show been trusting place. Yes Diane you know the air was already tense here in Minneapolis and this has certainly certainly contributed to do some of that those protests went. Into the overnight hours side you saw those back conflict between police officers and there was a demonstrators doubt. National guards that were already deployed here in Minneapolis and across different parts of this state. Because of the ongoing trial and authorities have now moved to some of those national Guardsmen to. The Brooklyn center area just to make sure that these protests. Remain a peaceful authorities say they welcome the protests they just do not want to see any of the violence. We are anticipating bracing for possibly more protests later today Diane. Read an Alex it's day eleven of the trial of Darren show venue where does the child's stand right now we know them prosecution is looking to wrap up soon. What are we expecting to see in court today. The yet Diane testimony continues here at the courthouse side just a little while we're expecting prosecutors are going to call. George of Floyd's their Brothers to testify to talk about the kind of person. He was that the prosecution could suing their after rest their case and then the defense would begin presenting their case. To the jury Diane. Turn out expressed in Minneapolis fourth thanks Alex. And for more let's bring in Holliston legal analysts on the lawn crime network Terry Austin for more on this Terri thanks for being here is there concern. That day shooting of Donte' right in the protests surrounding it could influence jurors in the showman trial. Well you know Diane they're not supposed to be watching television but this is going to be difficult to a boy yet another shooting in Minnesota. An. We think unarmed black and we don't know at this point but it was for a traffic violation so I think it will affect their minds if they've seen these reports. The judge may even say something about if in fact it comes. Like yes I definitely think that. Having a situation like this so close to the Derrick children trial might actually affect the jurors it might affect what they're thinking and how they're consider age. This evidence at this moment in time and as we just heard announced is report we're hearing that the Brothers. I'm George Floyd might testified today how important do you think their testimony could be to the prosecution's case. Well you know I think it's going to. Mate George Floyd looked more like a person it will humanize him so far the prosecution has. Tried to put on witnesses who saw what happened obviously they are talking about the use of force they put on all of the police and then they put on all of the medical evidence to try to show. What caused the death of George Floyd I think now as they end up the case. They're trying to humanize Joyce Bledsoe putting the brother Ron I think we'll make viewers remember what George Floyd was like when he lives his family his children and it will certainly evo or at least that's part of the intention I presume that the prosecution is trying to leave both. Some sympathy so that the jurors see this individual. Not just as someone who was shot but Ford killed rather I think they'll see him as someone who is human and who. Was a victim and who absolutely. You know died at the hands out a police officer. And what most of the prosecution need to do as it wraps up its case. I'd being done an excellent job thus far I think that the prosecution is done. A Barry good job. On read Iraq what ever points were made by Eric Nelson on cross I think they. Typed that out very well so. I think ending at Whitney family members like his brother will be all they need to do at this point it judges already said he didn't want she lifted. Information two meant to. Evidence he said that when we were looking at the police officers so I don't think we're going to hat anymore that type of evidence or even anymore that medical evidence I think they've established very well. That George Floyd died at east because the you know me on the neck and the weight on the back it Sadr even doctor. Eight Arab who at first we thought was going to talk about the fact that there was no ex CF and talk about the fact that the hearts. And the drugs were part of the cries of the death of George fled Clinton. Docket baker actually really supported the prosecution's theory that had it not been for. They need and the pressure on George Floyd he would not have died clearly. I think doctor baker thought that all of these other factors contributed. But that cause of the death was the fact that there was this pressure on George Floyd's I think. The prosecution has done as much as they can as far as use of force as far as. Causation and now they're just going to finalize all of they meet all of what they need here with the immunization part of the trial. And we know that spark of life testimony that's unique to Minnesota where expecting to hear more about Terry Austin. Thank you as always for your now says sending you don't mind hanging around artists you bit later for our continuing coverage of the trial at their children thanks Terry. And now to record breaking weekend for US vaccinations daily doses had a high of four point six million. According to the CDC more than 100 in nineteen million Americans have now received at least one dose that's more than 45% of US adults.

We're stops dead. Emotionally hostile emissions jumping nearly 30% in the upper midwest in just the past week the CDC ranking Michigan the number one hot spot in the country and hospitals. Feeling the strain. Some patients facing eight to ten hour wait times those hospitalized shifting away from now vaccinated older Americans to those unvaccinated. Younger. Adults now we're seeing that kind of forty to 59 age group is the largest group that's getting infected most certainly certainly seeing some children they're getting L. But it's really that young adults. Population that's driving a lot of the cases so for us this surge is bigger than it was a year ago. Doctors say driving this surge a mix of reduced restrictions pandemic fatigue. And the UK variant which now accounts for 70%. Of the new cases initially get. The federal government now sending Michigan more personnel to administer vaccines. The governor Gretchen liver doubling down that are state needs more shots when there is a surge that we think that it's important that who we. We go Sarah we Russian to meet where that need as across the country the supply of Johnson Johnson vaccine expected to drop 85%. This week but there are glimmers of hope. A hostile admissions are rising deaths have declined since the January peak and the US travel industries starting to rebound. After the CDC said fully vaccinated Americans could safely travel. Doctors here in Michigan say they do a better treatment protocols for Kobe patients now than they did during the first surgeon.
