FALCON HEIGHTS, Minn. (AP) — The Latest on the fatal police shooting in suburban St. Paul (all times local):

7 a.m.

St. Paul police made one arrest after bottles and rocks were thrown by a rogue group of protesters who broke away from a peaceful demonstration outside the governor's residence in the aftermath of a fatal police shooting.

Police say the group made their way to a nearby commercial street where they broke the storefront window of one business as well as windows of an unattended police squad car.

Sgt. Mike Ernster says officers used a chemical irritant to stop the perpetrators. He says the individual arrested could face a charge of felony riot. No serious injuries were reported.

Police say demonstrators continued to gather peacefully outside the governor's mansion.


6:15 a.m.

Hundreds of demonstrators gathered outside the Minnesota governor's mansion in St. Paul to support family and friends grieving a black man fatally shot by police during a routine traffic stop.

The gathering Thursday evening was the second time a crowd grew outside the governor's residence in the wake of the fatal shooting of Philando Castile by a police officer in suburban Falcon Heights. Gov. Mark Dayton spoke individually with demonstrators, but did not address the crowd as a whole.

Demonstrators initially gathered outside the residence early Thursday, hours after Philando Castile was killed during a traffic stop.

As the crowd thinned Thursday night, demonstrators marched from the mansion to the place where Castile was shot, blocking traffic at several intersections along the way. About 50 marchers headed back to the governor's residence overnight.


4:20 a.m.

Minnesota's governor says a suburban police officer probably wouldn't have shot a black motorist dead if the driver had been white.

Gov. Mark Dayton's strong words about this week's killing of Philando Castile threw him straight into a suddenly reignited debate about how police treat people of color.

Dayton all but called Castile's death in a St. Paul suburb an act of racism. He told protesters gathered outside his residence all day and night that no one should die over a traffic stop.

Hours after Dayton's remarks, gunmen shot and killed five police officers and wounded six more amid protests in Dallas over Castile's killing and a second fatal police shooting of a black man.
