Protesters and police clashed in Minneapolis Tuesday at the same intersection where 24 hours earlier, a black man died in police custody as witness video showed officers kneeling on the man’s neck.

Video from the scene showed hundreds of protesters packing the streets on the south side of the city on Tuesday evening. At one point, police used tear gas to disperse the crowd, Minneapolis police confirmed to CNN.
