Police officers were seen outside a local grocery store that was looted amid the protests.

People also looted a Target department store on Wednesday May 27th, as the second day of protests and demonstrations against the death of an unarmed black man turned more violent.

There’s been an outpouring of rage over the death of a black man seen in a widely circulated video gasping for breath as a white officer knelt on his neck.

The video, taken by an onlooker to Monday night’s fatal encounter between police and George Floyd, 46, showed him lying face down and handcuffed, groaning for help and repeatedly saying, “please, I can’t breathe,” before growing motionless.
