MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Protesters faced off with officers in Minneapolis early Saturday over the shooting death of a man by members of a U.S. Marshals task force.

Photos from the scene following a vigil for 32-year-old Winston Boogie Smith Jr. show dumpster fires in the street and a line of officers standing guard.

Deputies fatally shot Smith on Thursday.

Authorities say Smith was wanted on a weapons violation and fired a gun before he was shot and killed. Family and friends described Smith as a father of three who was often harassed by police.

Police said some people vandalized buildings and stole from businesses after the shooting Thursday.

Nine people were arrested.
