60 people arrested in Downtown Detroit George Floyd protest, police say
DETROIT Police say 60 participants of a Downtown Detroit George Floyd protest held Friday night were arrested. The Detroit Police Department added that a majority of the people arrested were not from Detroit. Police say a 21-year-old Eastpointe man was killed Friday night when someone approached his car during the protest and fired shots. The point of protesting what happened to Mr. Floyd can be lost when violence becomes the narrative of the protest. I urge everyone to continue to honor Mr. Floyd by engaging in safe, peaceful and civil protest of his murder, said Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy in a statement.
