MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Police in Minneapolis say they have arrested a second man in the overnight shootings of five Black Lives Matter protesters.

The man was arrested in his car in south Minneapolis. Police described him as a 32-year-old Hispanic man.

Police earlier arrested a 23-year-old white man in the shootings. They say they are still seeking “additional suspects.”

None of the protesters suffered life-threatening injuries during Monday night’s shooting.

They were among scores of people who have demonstrated for more than a week outside a north Minneapolis police precinct in the wake of the death of 23-year-old Jamar Clark.
