No formal charges have been filed in the George Floyd case following two days of violent protests in Minneapolis, but the U.S. attorney said the investigation was a "top priority." Freddie Joyner has more.
Benjamin Crump, the lawyer representing George Floyd's family, pushed back against the assertion made by police officers' defense attorneys in court filings that Floyd, who had fentanyl in his system, died of an overdose. "People tried to kill George Floyd a second time," Crump said after the hearing.

NBA play-off fixtures inthe United States were postponed last week as players protested following thepolice shooting of Jacob Blake in Wisconsin – with other north American sportssoon following their lead. It came months after the killing of George Floyd inAmerica which led to widespread protests that included Premier Leaguefootballers. Randolph, whose American father Ed initially left the country toplay basketball in Northern Ireland, said: “It’s a situation that is obviouslynot going to go away anytime soon. “When the whole George Floyd incidenthappened, there have been several incidents afterwards, so therefore themessage still hasn’t sunk in.
