Protesters rallied outside the state Capitol on Friday night after a jury acquitted St. Anthony police officer Jeronimo Yanez of manslaughter and other charges in the fatal shooting last summer of Philando Castile during a traffic stop.
Even though the number had dwindled to about 500 at 11:00 p-m Friday, Interstate 94 remained closed to traffic. Eighteen marchers were arrested after a 90-minute standoff with Minnesota State Patrol officers for failing to comply with orders to disperse, an agency spokesperson said. More than 1,000 people gather that evening at the school where Castile worked, then hundreds walk back to the governor's residence.
Yanez, 29, shot Castile, 32, multiple times on July 6, 2016, seconds after the black motorist alerted the officer that he was carrying a gun, during the traffic stop.
The officer who shot Castile, Jeronimo Yanez, is Latino-not white-as some online were quick to note, arguing that this fact diminishes the role racism played in the shooting.
If you read carefully, you'll note that it appears that the officer shot Castile for doing exactly what the officer told him to do.
Like several similar cases, Castile's death was shared worldwide on social media.
The story made global headlines past year as Castille's girlfriend was a passenger in the vehicle and showed the incident live on Facebook.
But Ramsey County Attorney John Choi, who filed charges against the officer, declared such fear unreasonable.

Organizers of the Friday protest said on Facebook, "This verdict shows how the system is rigged against justice for victims of police terror". Not surprisingly, many were outraged by the situation.
"As soon as you say, 'I'm a concealed carry holder". His girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds, livestreamed the aftermath of the shooting on Facebook because, she said, she wanted to make sure the truth was known. Kelly says Yanez thought Castile looked like "a possible match" for a suspect in a recent armed robbery.
"We would like to see if this could go to a federal court". No video existed of exactly what happened inside the vehicle.
Outside the courthouse, Castile's mother said Yanez got away with murder.
Yanez fired repeatedly at Castile, testifying later he though the man was reaching for a gun. Valerie Castile denounced the unanimous jury decision and declared, "The system continues to fail black people, and it will continue to fail you all".
Among the arrested were two journalists - Susan Du from City Pages and David Clarey from the Minnesota Daily, who were charged with unlawful assembly and being a public nuisance.
The jury cleared the policeman of second degree manslaughter and two counts of felony of intentional discharge of a risky weapon for endangering the safety of Ms Reynolds and her four-year-old daughter.
