Minneapolis police claim obstruction following recent shooting; City Council member wants George Floyd Square reopened

After two people were shot at 38th Street and Chicago Avenue Sunday night, the Minneapolis Police Department sent an email to City Council Members Andrea Jenkins and Alondra Cano, which said they had trouble getting to the area and when they did get to the scene of the shooting the evidence had been handled by people who oversee George Floyd Square.

George Floyd Square is cordoned off by a four-block area with barricades and is referred to by some as an "autonomous zone."

The email to Jenkins and Cano from a Minneapolis police inspector said, "I just wanted you to be aware of another incident at this location. Hostile crowds destroying evidence and initially refusing to entrance by 'security.'"

Jenkins told 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS she supports the memorialization of George Floyd Square and wants it to become a permanent fixture as she and others on the City Council pursue racial justice and police reform. But she does not condone any action which inhibits police investigations.

Wasn't the mayor and/or council working to have a plan for the intersection before the snow arrived?

Also I have been to the memorial, there were not a lot of people around but it was daytime. Do larger crowds gather at night?
