Twins, Wolves, Wild postpone games following police shooting
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Twins, Wild and Timberwolves all have postponed games scheduled for Monday.
The decisions were made because of safety concerns following the fatal police shooting of a Black man in a nearby suburb. The Red Sox and Twins were supposed to start a four-game series. There was no word yet about rescheduling.
The Wild will play the St. Louis Blues on May 12 instead. The Timberwolves’ game against the Brooklyn Nets also was postponed.
Daunte Wright was killed Sunday when a Brooklyn Center police officer fired a handgun instead of a stun gun after a traffic stop.
