After another night of devastation and destruction in Minneapolis, residents are on the streets to start the fifth day of protests to try to help clean up their city. 

Protests took to the streets of south Minneapolis for the fourth night of both peaceful and violent protests. Targets of the violent protesters were near the Minneapolis Police fifth precinct where they set fire to a Wells Fargo bank, a staffing agency and the vacant K-Mart building.

Saturday morning brought out dozens of volunteers to help clean the streets after looting hit the area hard the night before. Sweeping up debris, moving large pieces of bricks and removing graffiti happened all over the area by residents of the neighborhood and people coming in to help. 

Govenrment officals are expecting for a fifth night of looting. Minneapolis, St. Paul and other suburbs have issued curfews to help seperate Minnesota residents and peaceful protesters from the violent protesters.
