About 200 people are gathered outside the Minnesota Governor's Residence in St. Paul, protesting the fatal shooting of a man by a suburban police officer.
    
The crowd chanted early Thursday morning, demanding action from Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton. Police prevented vehicles from approaching, but music blared from a car parked just outside the gate, which protesters festooned with yellow police line tape.
    
"No justice, no sleep," the protesters chanted.  "Mark Dayton, do you care?"
    
It wasn't immediately clear if the governor was home. The lights inside the mansion were mostly off.
    
Dayton's spokesman didn't immediately respond to an inquiry from The Associated Press.

Family members of the man fatally shot by a suburban Twin Cities police officer say he was a 32-year-old cafeteria supervisor at a Montessori school.
    
Clarence Castile told the Star Tribune (http://strib.mn/29pvme1 ) his nephew, 32-year-old Philando Castile, died minutes after arriving at the hospital. Clarence Castile was at the Hennepin County Medical Center with other family members.
    
Clarence Castile says Philando Castile had worked in St. Paul's J.J. Hill school cafeteria for 12 to 15 years. He says his nephew was a "good kid."
    
Among other family members at the hospital was Philando Castile's cousin, Antonio Johnson, who told the newspaper Castile was "a black individual driving in Falcon Heights who was immediately criminally profiled."
    
Police have said the incident began when an officer initiated a traffic stop in suburban Falcon Heights but have not further explained what led to the shooting.

2 a.m.
    
An official says the police officer who fatally shot a man in Minnesota is on paid administrative leave pending an investigation.
    
St. Anthony Police interim police chief Jon Mangseth didn't take any questions during an early morning news conference. He read aloud a brief statement the department issued earlier, then added that "the officer involved" had been put on standard leave.
    
Mangseth had said earlier that he wasn't sure how many officers were involved in the shooting, which happened after a traffic stop.
    
He also said earlier that he didn't have "much information" about what led to the shooting. Authorities have not identified the man who was killed.
    
A video posted Wednesday night on Facebook Live appeared to show an incident like the one police described.
    
The Associated Press couldn't immediately verify the authenticity of the video. Mangseth said he had been "made aware there was a livestream on Facebook" but said he had not yet seen the video and didn't know anything about its contents. He didn't address it during the news conference.
