Chief orders investigation into police response to protest

The police chief in Minneapolis has ordered an investigation into reports a child was pepper sprayed by an officer during a demonstration over a police shooting in Madison, Wisconsin.

The group Black Lives Matter Minneapolis claims a 10-year-old was among those police sprayed with a chemical irritant as dozens of people marched downtown on May 13. Police have not said whether officers used pepper spray on the crowd. But, Minneapolis Police Chief Janee Harteau said in a statement that the group’s concerns would be investigated.
