Reporters covering the one-year anniversary of George Floyd‘s death on the street corner where he was killed by a former Minneapolis police officer last year heard more than a dozen gunshots go off Tuesday morning, with one person reportedly injured.

Watching footage from the scene, Associated Press reporter Philip Crowther said that his news team counted 30 shots go off and that windows were broken by the gunfire. “Consensus among reporters here at George Floyd Square was that we heard anywhere between a dozen and two dozen shots fired,” Crowther tweeted.

Tuesday marked the one-year anniversary of Floyd’s death, which sparked racial justice protests nationally and around the world and renewed calls for police reform. Last month, former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, who was seen kneeling on Floyd’s neck for more than nine minutes, was found guilty on all three counts he was charged with, including second-degree murder. Three other officers still face trial.

The intersection where Floyd’s death occurred was turned into a site for a memorial and protests. Many came to George Floyd Square on Tuesday to pay tribute.


Members of Floyd’s family are scheduled to be in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday to meet with President Joe Biden and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

Three other cops still set to face trial in death of George Floyd

Three more former Minneapolis cops are still set to stand trial in the death of George Floyd — following Tuesday’s murder conviction for former police officer Derek Chauvin

The since-fired officers — J. Alexander Kueng, Thomas Lane and Tou Thao — are all free on $750,000 bail ahead of their trial, which is set to begin Aug. 23.

Lane, 38, who along with Kueng were the first two cops on scene, was positioned on Floyd’s legs, according to prosecutors.

During the arrest, Lane asked: “Should we roll him on his side?”

Chauvin responded: “No, staying put where we got him.”

Lane then said, “I am worried about excited delirium or whatever.” Chauvin replied, “That’s why we have him on his stomach.”

Thao, 35, the only cop of the four to not come into physical contact with Floyd, stood between onlookers and the three other officers, with a clear view of how Floyd was being restrained, prosecutors said.

At one point, Thao kept a witness back who had stepped off the curb “imploring Chauvin to get off of Mr. Floyd,” the complaint said.

They face charges of aiding and abetting second-degree murder as well as second-degree manslaughter over the May 2020 death of Floyd. They face up to 40 years in prison on the top charge.

All three officers were involved in the fatal arrest, with two of them — Kueng and Lane — restraining Floyd along with Chauvin, according to prosecutors.

It was Kueng, Lane and Chauvin who forced Floyd to the ground after he balked at getting into the back of a squad car during an arrest for allegedly using a counterfeit bill.
Once Floyd was down, Kueng, 27, was kneeling on his back, positioned between Chauvin and Lane, according to prosecutors.
After Floyd became unresponsive, Kueng checked Floyd’s right wrist for a pulse. “I couldn’t find one,” Kueng said, according to the complaint.

Kamala Harris Says Guilty Verdict For Derek Chauvin Isn’t Enough

Published

Vice President Kamala Harris said that while the jury in former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin’s trial may have found him guilty of murdering George Floyd, their verdict is not enough to “heal the pain that existed for generations.”

“Let’s say there is a guilty verdict on the highest charge, it will not take away the pain of the Floyd family. It will not take away the pain of the communities, all communities, regardless of their color or geographic location, that felt sadness and anger in what they witnessed in that video,” Harris told CNN on Tuesday shortly before Chauvin was convicted on all charges.

While Harris signaled that the “consequence and accountability” for Chauvin is a step in the right direction, she continued to spout off why judicial justice won’t remedy the “pain” caused by years of what she has previously called rogue policing.

“This verdict is but a piece of it and it will not heal the pain that existed for generations, that has existed for generations among people who have experienced and first-hand witnessed what now a broader public is seeing because of smartphones and the ubiquity of our ability to videotape in real-time what is happening in front of our faces. And that is the reality of it,” Harris continued.

Others echoed Harris’s words after the jury’s verdict was announced on Tuesday afternoon. The vice president’s sister Maya Harris claimed that a “just verdict is not the same as justice.”
