MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Twins have postponed their game against the Boston Red Sox because of safety concerns following the fatal police shooting of a Black man in a nearby suburb.

The Red Sox and Twins were scheduled for a four-game series beginning Monday afternoon at Target Field. The Twins made their decision in consultation with Major League Baseball and state and local officials.

There was no word yet about rescheduling or the status of games set for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Daunte Wright was killed Sunday when a police officer in Brooklyn Center fired a handgun instead of a stun gun after a traffic stop.
