At least one group of armed men have been seen standing outside a strip mall in Minneapolis on Wednesday night amid intensifying protests in the city and looting.

Protests erupted Tuesday after video emerged of a police officer with his knee pressed against George Floyd's neck while the man was in custody. Protesters have called for the officers involved to be charged in his death.

Max Nesterak, a reporter at the Minnesota Reformer, interviewed a group of armed men outside a tobacconist who said they agree with the protests but not the looting. They said police in the city have been overextended and they stopped at the tobacco shop because they were told that the business owners were desperate to protect their store.
