    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A Minnesota sixth-grader stepped up her tradition of Black Friday giving this year and made it even bigger.

    POLICE have responded to reports of a shooting at Southpoint Mall. Law enforcement officers were called to the Streets at the mall following the reports. 1A shooting has been reported at the mallCredit: Google Maps Shoppers rushed to malls across the country today as Black Friday sales commenced. Malls and stores report decent-sized crowds, if not the floods of people that used to fight over the latest toys and electronics — online shopping is much too common for that now, and discounts are both more subdued and spread out over the weeks leading up to Christmas, on both websites and in stores. But out-of-stock items due to supply crunches, higher prices for gas and food, and labor shortages that make it more difficult to respond to customers are also causing frustrations for shoppers.

    University of Florida students who said they supported changing the name Black Friday because of possible racial connotations - with one even saying it 'sounded offensive' - changed their minds after they were told it has nothing to do with race.   Students at the Gainesville campus were asked by a student reporter with Campus Reform whether they supported renaming Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving that is seen as a commercially driven day of consumerism. Their responses were recorded on video.  Black Friday was named in honor of retailers earning a profit and going 'into the black' on the day after Thanksgiving after a year of loss and being 'in the red.'  Ophelie Jacobson asks students if they will be participating in Black Friday.

Like, they would assist them." "I think that equality’s important," another student said. "I mean, I think it’s definitely a valid opinion. I kind of agree it should be changed just because Black Friday sounds offensive," another student said. One student countered that changing the name...

    ARDEN ARCADE (CBS13) – Arden Fair reopened and holiday shoppers were back to business as usual, not even a full day after a deadly mall shooting killed two people on Black Friday. “Coming to a mall, where there are kids, parents, and grandmas – they didn’t have any consideration for anybody else,” said Marcus Ross. Ross was one of several customers who made their way back to Arden Fair on Saturday not even 24 hours after the deadly shooting turned what was a haven for shoppers on the biggest shopping day of the year into havoc. No arrests have been made in what the Sacramento Police Department is calling an isolated incident. Ross said it was surprising to be able to head back through the doors so soon. “Pick up where you left off I guess – but usually stuff is closed for 1 to 2 days,” he said. Arden Fair reopened at 10 a.m on Saturday and it was back to business as usual for the big holiday shopping weekend. Shoppers like Liam Healy didn’t hesitate about returning. He...

    A second person has died after a Black Friday mall shooting in California. One victim, a 19-year-old man, died at the Arden Fair Mall and another man, who was 17, was taken to a local hospital where he died, the Sacramento Police Department said Saturday. Police said they were called to the shopping center at 6:11 p.m. Friday after getting a report of shots fired. The shootings were believed to be an isolated incident and police said they were looking for a suspect who was in his 20s. The victims have not been identified. “We are deeply concerned by the increase in gun violence in Sacramento and other cities during the pandemic, and have supported increasing our efforts to reach young people at risk,” Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg tweeted Friday night. “A gun is never the answer.”
    Two teenagers died after a shooting at a mall in Sacramento, California. Two males, one 19 and the other 17, were shot on Friday night at Arden Fair mall. The 19-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene. The 17-year-old died several hours later at the hospital, according to the city's police department. Neither victim has been identified. When shots were heard at the mall, patrons of the shops quickly evacuated. "Heard a couple of shots go off, didn’t really think anything of it," one mall employee told the Sacramento Bee. "And more and more kept going off, so everyone started running toward our back room. ... Everyone just started running." "We are awaiting more details on this tragic incident," Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg wrote in a text message to the paper. “We are deeply concerned by the increase in gun violence in Sacramento and other cities since the onset of COVID-19, and have supported increasing our city’s efforts to reach young people who are at risk. A gun is never the answer." While the suspect was...
    Black Friday got off to a real bang in Florida — with a trailer exploding outside a Walmart just minutes after opening for bargain hunters. A sheriff’s deputy was already outside the store in Brooksville to control a possible rush of shoppers when he heard an explosion just after the Walmart opened at 5 a.m., Hernando County Sheriff’s Office said. He found a tractor-trailer on fire, with the flames quickly spreading to two others either side, with a driver in one pulled to safety, the force said. “As other deputies arrived on scene, they responded to the store to assist with evacuating the store, as the three tractor-trailers were parked very close to the building,” the department said in a Facebook post. After the fire was extinguished, shoppers were finally allowed in at 8 a.m., three hours after the initial opening time, officials said in later posts. It was not clear what caused the explosion, which is still being investigated, the sheriff’s office said. “Fortunately, there were no injuries as a result of the explosion/fire,” the statement said. It was...
    CNBC.com's MacKenzie Sigalos brings you the day's top business news headlines. On today's show, CNBC.com's Melissa Repko explains why this year's holiday shopping deals started earlier than normal online, and what Black Friday will look like while Covid-19 still poses a threat to Americans. Plus, CNBC's Seema Mody dives into the "cold-chain" technology and superfreezers needed to distribute a Covid-19 vaccine across the country. So long doorbusters! Retailers put deepest discounts online after weeks of deals On Thanksgiving Day, eager bargain hunters usually head to the store and shoulder their way through crowded aisles to get a jumpstart on their holiday shopping. Not this year. Many of those stores will stay shuttered, and even the word "doorbusters" has largely disappeared from circulars and ads. Retailers including Walmart and Home Depot have swapped one-day store events for a drumbeat of holiday deals. Sales will last longer. More are online. And rushing to a crowded store on Black Friday may feel not only risky, but also obsolete, since many deep discounts are a click away and some popular items are available only...
    Twitter via Lin Wood Black Rifle Coffee, a coffee company beloved by right-wing Trumpworld characters, is under fire after Kenosha shooter Kyle Rittenhouse was pictured following his release from jail on Friday night in one of their t-shirts. “[email protected] do you sponsor Kyle Rittenhouse?” Sleeping Giants, the progressive ad watchdog organization, asked of the coffee company.  The coffee company was quick to issue a statement saying that they have nothing to do with Rittenhouse’s legal efforts and are not sponsoring him in any way. “Black Rifle Coffee Company does not sponsor legal advocacy efforts and does not have a relationship with Kyle Rittenhouse,” a company spokesperson told Mediaite via email on Saturday evening. Rittenhouse’s lawyer Lin Wood was the one who initially posted the controversial photo on Twitter Friday evening. FREE AT LAST!!!

    PORTO ALEGRE, Brazil – More than 1,000 demonstrators attacked a Carrefour Brasil supermarket in the southern Brazilian city of Porto Alegre on Friday after security guards beat to death a Black man at the store. The killing, which has sparked protests across Brazil, occurred late on Thursday when a store employee called security after the man threatened to attack her, cable news channel GloboNews said, citing the Rio Grande do Sul state military police. Amateur footage of the fatal beating and tributes to the Black victim were published on social media. He was identified in local media by his father as 40-year-old Joao Alberto Silveira Freitas.

It said it would terminate the contract with the security firm, fire the employee in charge...

    Clashes among protesters erupted late Friday evening following a vigil held for a Black man shot and killed by police Thursday in a city near Portland, Ore. According to The Associated Press, hundreds of people had gathered for a vigil in Hazel Dell, an unincorporated area of Vancouver, Wash., where family and friends say Kevin Peterson Jr., 21, was shot Thursday night. Clark County Sheriff Chuck Atkins said in a statement Friday that a joint city-county narcotics task force was conducting an investigation in the city located about 12 miles north of Portland Thursday evening, which led to the chase of a man into the parking lot of a bank. According to Atkins, “the man reportedly fired his weapon at the deputies. The deputies returned fire and the subject was tragically killed,” adding that a firearm was later recovered at the scene.  While authorities have themselves not yet named the person who was shot Thursday, Kevin Peterson Sr. told The Oregonian/OregonLive that the person was his son, Kevin E.

    Gunshots were reported around midnight Saturday during a protest in Vancouver, Wash., after a 21-year-old Black man was shot and killed by sheriff’s deputies just outside the city Thursday night. No one was hurt in Saturday’s shooting, according to a Twitter message posted by Sergio Olmos, a reporter with Oregon Public Broadcasting. It was unclear whether any suspects had been taken into custody in connection with the gunfire. Vancouver, Wash., a city of about 190,000 residents, is located just across the Columbia River from Portland, Ore., and is the fourth largest city in Washington state. It is not to be confused with Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, a much larger city of some 675,000 residents located nearly 500 miles away to the north. Videos posted on social media early Saturday showed police in riot gear on the streets of Vancouver, Wash., dispersing a crowd after midnight local time.
