SIXERS COACH DOC RIVERS ON MURDER OF ANOTHER BLACK MAN

By Harvey Hoffman

Three pro games scheduled to take place last night in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area were postponed in the wake of a police shooting of an unarmed Black man.

An MLB game between the Minnesota Twins and Boston Red Sox was indefinitely postponed, as was an NBA game between the Minnesota Timberwolves and Brooklyn Nets. An NHL game between the Minnesota Wild and St. Louis Blues was rescheduled for May 12.

Daunte Wright, 20, was killed Sunday in the Minneapolis suburb of Brooklyn Center after he was pulled over for what police said was a traffic violation. Officers then tried to arrest Wright for an outstanding warrant before a struggle ensued and he was shot when he got back in his car. Wright managed to drive away but struck another vehicle several blocks away, and he was pronounced dead at the scene after medical personnel attempted lifesaving measures.
