Four off-duty Minneapolis police officers working a Minnesota Lynx WNBA game reportedly walked off the job after the team wore warm-up shirts supporting Black Lives Matter.
"When we look at the facts, it's hard to deny there's a real problem in our society," Lynx player Rebekkah Brunson said during a press conference.
The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports the four officers were working security for the game on Saturday but left prematurely and took their names off the list for working future Lynx events.
