A protest outside the Minneapolis 3rd Precinct police station turned violent Wednesday night as demonstrators demanded justice in the police killing of George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man. After fires broke out following looting near the protests, Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey said Thursday the response came "not just because of five minutes of horror, but 400 years." "If you're feeling that sadness and that anger, it's not only understandable—it's right," he said. Police stood guard near the looting but did not appear to intervene. One man was found shot dead near the protest, and police said they have taken a suspect into custody in the apparent homicide. The officer who kneeled on Floyd's neck and three others involved were fired Tuesday.
