Protests erupted overnight in Minneapolis after the death of a black man who was in police custody and in public view. The incident was captured on a video recording.

While some demonstrators peacefully marched on the streets, thousands more deadlocked with police in a standoff where officers used tear gas to hold off the crowds.

Four police officers have been fired just one day after the death of George Floyd.

Minneapolis Major Jacob Frey tweeted, "Four responding MPD officers involved in the death of George Floyd have been terminated. This is the right call."

Video from a bystander taken outside a south Minneapolis grocery store on Monday night showed a white officer pressing his knee on Floyd's neck.

While handcuffed, Floyd pleaded that he couldn't breathe and finally stopped moving.
