Minneapolis Police Fatally Shoot Man During Traffic Stop – The New York Times
Videos postedonline by a reporter for The Star Tribune showed that people quickly descended on the scene, some of whom were shouting at the police.
Mayor Jacob Frey said in a statement that he would share information about the shooting as quickly as possible, saying transparency was necessary to rebuild trust between the police and people of color.
“We must all be committed to getting the facts, pursuing justice and keeping the peace,” Mr. Frey said.
The three Minneapolis officers who pinned Mr. Floyd to the pavement were soon fired, along with a fourth at the scene. Derek Chauvin, the former officer who held his knee on Mr. Floyd’s neck, was charged with second-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter, and the other three were charged with aiding and abetting him. All have pleaded not guilty; a trial is set for March, but a motion from lawyers for some of the officers to delay the trial is pending.
