Looting and flames erupt in Minneapolis amid growing protests over George Floyd's death

The Midtown Corner apartment building, at 29th St. and 26th Av. S. in Minneapolis, was part of the redevelopment of the former Rainbow Foods site. Developers planned 189 units, with 38 set aside for affordable housing.

Anger over the death of George Floyd under a police officer's knee spilled into the streets of Minneapolis for a second night Wednesday, intensifying well beyond Tuesday night's unrest with a shooting death, widespread looting and a fire that shrouded the Lake Street neighborhood in smoke.

One person was fatally shot in the area where the protest was taking place late Wednesday, possibly by a pawnshop owner who said the person was looting his business.

In a news conference early Thursday, police spokesman John Elder said two officers responded to the scene outside Cadillac Pawn & Jewelry at 1538 E. Lake Street and administered first aid to the wounded man until medics arrived. He was taken to HCMC, where he died.
