The identity of the African American man who was killed after a Minneapolis police officer was seen kneeling on his neck, making it difficult for him to breathe, has been revealed. Also, the officers involved have been fired.
According to activist Shaun King, George Floyd "was beloved". He was "from the 3rd Ward in Houston and was well known all over Houston. He was up in Minneapolis for work."

Meanwhile, it has been revealed that 4 Minneapolis police officers have been fired over George Floyd's death. Though only two police officers were caught in the video making the rounds, another video shared by the victim's brother has shown that there were 4 officers at the scene.




The police officers were fired Tuesday, May 26, following the death of George Floyd on Monday, May 25, after an officer knelt on his neck while he was handcuffed on the ground, shouting that he couldn’t breathe.

Police Chief Medaria Arradondo announced their terminations during a news conference. He did not publicly identify the officers. However, Shaun King has shared the identity of two of the police officers involved.

Minnesota’s Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is investigating Floyd’s death. The bureau said in a statement Tuesday that it will present its findings without recommendation to the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office for review.

The FBI has opened a separate federal civil rights investigation into the matter at the request of the Minneapolis Police Department, Arradondo said.
