Police stand near protesters at the Minneapolis 3rd Police Precinct after people gathered at Chicago Ave. and East 38th Street during a rally for George Floyd in Minneapolis on Tuesday, May 26, 2020. Federal authorities are investigating a white Minneapolis police officer for possible civil rights violations, after a video surface showing him kneeling on a handcuffed African-American man�s neck and ignoring the man�s protests that he couldn�t breathe.

Community anger over the death of George Floyd boiled over Tuesday night in Minneapolis, as protesters and officers clashed, lobbing projectiles and tear gas.

Floyd died Monday at HCMC after an officer kneeled on his neck for several minutes, ignoring Floyd's protests that he couldn't breathe. The scene was caught on video and posted online, quickly becoming a national sensation.

Tuesday evening, thousands of people, many of them wearing masks, marched peacefully from the site - outside Cup Foods on Chicago Avenue - to the Police Department's Third Precinct, where tensions quickly escalated.
