Protests in Minnesota after George Floyd’s death: One man died

One man died in a protest in Minneapolis on the second day in the city over the murder of African-American George Floyd May 25.

According to Star Tribune, the pawnshop owner opened fire. The wounded man was taken to the hospital, where he later died.

According to Fox News, Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey called on Minnesota Governor Tim Wals to introduce the National Guard into the city.

Protests in Minneapolis began after a video was posted online in which a police officer kneels down Floyd’s throat, who is lying on the ground in handcuffs. The detainee asked to be released and said that he had nothing to breathe, but the police did not respond to his words and the man died.

The policemen were fired, and the protesters are demanding to be held accountable.
