A group of marchers protesting the fatal shooting of a man in Richfield shut down part of Interstate 494 for about a half-hour on Sunday night.
The group of several dozen protesters left a vigil held at the scene of Saturday night's shooting on 77th Street East, and entered the westbound lanes of the freeway at Portland Avenue at about 7:30 p.m.
Authorities shut down both directions of I-494 as the march continued down the freeway, exiting at Nicollet Avenue about a half-hour later. The freeway has since reopened.
The march continued on city streets, heading east on 77th Street as of 8:05 p.m.
