Arson, attempted murder among charges in Minneapolis unrest


MINNEAPOLIS — One Minnesota man has been charged with attempted murder for allegedly shooting at police officers during unrest in Minneapolis last week, while two others face federal charges for allegedly throwing Molotov cocktails into a suburban government building, according to charges made public Tuesday.

The charges are the latest to stem from unrest following the death of George Floyd, a handcuffed black man who died May 25 after a white Minneapolis police officer pressed his knee into Floyd's neck for several minutes, ignoring Floyd's cries that he couldn't breathe.

Jaleel Stallings, 27, of St. Paul, was charged in Hennepin County with two counts of second-degree attempted murder, multiple counts of assault and other charges for allegedly firing multiple shots at SWAT officers during unrest Saturday in Minneapolis.
