Four men were charged on Monday in connection with the shooting of five protesters near the site of a demonstration outside a Minneapolis police station over the police killing of a black man earlier this month. Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman called the shooting racially motivated, and said additional charges are possible against the defendants and others. Allen Scarsella, 23, who prosecutors said in a complaint had admitted to opening fire on the five protesters, was charged with one count of second-degree riot while armed and five counts of second-degree assault.
