MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Police in Minneapolis shot and killed a man during a traffic stop on the city's south side Wednesday night.

The shooting was the first police-involved death in Minneapolis since George Floyd died in May while being arrested by four officers, and stirred anxiety about renewed protests in the city.

Officers were carrying out a traffic stop on a man they said was suspected of a felony.

Police Chief Medaria Arradondo said witnesses said the man fired at officers first and pledged to release body-camera video on Thursday.

Police have released no details of the slain man, including his race.

The state's Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is handling an investigation.
