American death of George Floyd, an African-American man, while he was being detained by Derek Chauvin, a white Minneapolis police officer. Floyd's death, widely reported and deemed murder by many people, sparked widespread race riots, arson and looting across at least 25 American cities over several days.

Floyd died while Chauvin kept his knee on the right side of Floyd's neck for 8 minutes and 46 seconds; 2 minutes and 53 seconds of which occurred after Floyd became unresponsive, according to the criminal complaint filed against Chauvin.

Floyd was handcuffed and lying face down on the road, while Chauvin had his knee on his neck. Officers Thomas K. Lane, Tou Thao, and J. Alexander Kueng participated in Floyd's arrest, with Kueng holding Floyd’s back, Lane holding his legs, and Thao looking on as he stood nearby.

George Perry Floyd was a 46-year-old African-American man who was born in Fayetteville, North Carolina (14 October 1973), and raised in Houston, Texas.
