Escalating demonstrations demanding justice for George Floyd have been going since he died May 25 after a Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck for minutes while he was handcuffed. 

The incident, at Chicago and 38th in south Minneapolis, was caught on video. In it, Floyd can be heard saying "I can't breathe." 

The four officers at the scene have been fired, and the FBI and Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension are investigating. As of Thursday afternoon, the officers had not been charged with a crime, despite calls from Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey and others to arrest them. 

Here is the latest on the fallout from Floyd's death and the demonstrations in Minneapolis:
