Protesters in the United States state of Minnesota on Wednesday filled the Minneapolis intersection where George Floyd, an unarmed black man, was pinned down by a white officer before dying at a hospital on Monday. Protesters chanted: "I can't breathe" and "Jail killer KKKops." The protesters eventually marched to a city police precinct, where police used tear gas to disperse the crowd. Police said some protesters damaged windows and a squad car and sprayed graffiti on the building. Hundreds remained on the streets of Minneapolis late Wednesday night protesting the death of George Floyd. The demonstrations, which began Wednesday, were initially peaceful but turned "extremely dangerous," according to Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz. "The situation near Lake Street and Hiawatha in Minneapolis has evolved into an extremely dangerous situation," Walz said on Twitter. "For everyone's safety, please leave the area and allow firefighters and paramedics to get to the scene."
