A police officer suffered a minor gunshot wound when a protest in Milwaukee over the police killing of a black man in Minneapolis turned violent overnight, authorities said.

Milwaukee news outlets report that the 38-year-old officer was shot about 3:30 a.m. Saturday near the 5th District police station on the city south's side.

Police say at least three nearby businesses were vandalized. Residents stepped in during the protest and helped put out a fire at a Walgreen's in Milwaukee's Harambee neighborhood.

Crews were seen Saturday cleaning debris at businesses that had been vandalized and looted.
