On May 25, 2020, Floyd, 46, died after a White policeman knelt on his neck for more than 8 minutes. The former officer, Derek Chauvin, ignored the victim’s pleas as Floyd informed him he couldn’t breathe.

Some protests against police brutality, systemic racism, and inequality, have been peaceful, but in other cases, they’ve turned violent or fatal. According to a report released on June 8, 2020, around 17 have died across the country in relation to the protests.

At the time of the barbecue restaurant owner’s death, the police and the National Guard were attempting to clear a crowd when gunshots were heard. The officials then returned fire in response.

According to the police, a surveillance camera captured McAtee opening fire as police officers approached. Acting Police Chief Robert Schroeder revealed that the video was released for transparency, however, many questions still needed to be answered in his death.

The police chief was fired by the mayor after it was discovered that officers kept their body cameras off during the incident. The matter is being investigated by the State police and the US attorney.
