Minneapolis to pay $365,000 for police shooting man in the head with rubber bullet during George Floyd protests

Minneapolis will pay $365,000 to a man who was struck in the head by a rubber bullet fired by police during the unrest following George Floyd's murder more than four years ago.

Abdi Adam, then 56, said he was waiting for a bus and had nothing to do with protests outside the Third Precinct police station the day before it was overrun and set ablaze by a mob on May 28, 2020.

The payment settles a lawsuit Adam filed last year and was approved 8-0 by the City Council on Thursday afternoon after a closed-door meeting with attorneys. Council members made no public statements before the vote.
