The US has been writhed by across the nation dissents over the passing of an African-American man in police care.

George Floyd, 46, passed on in the wake of being captured by police outside a shop in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Film of the capture on 25 May shows a white cop, Derek Chauvin, bowing on Mr Floyd’s neck while he was stuck to the floor.

Mr Chauvin, 44, has since been accused of homicide.

The key occasions that prompted Mr Floyd’s demise occurred inside only 30 minutes. In light of records from witnesses, video film and authority proclamations, this is what we know up until this point.

It started with a report of a phony $20 (£16.20) bill.

A report was made on the night of 25 May, when Mr Floyd purchased a pack of cigarettes from Cup Foods, a market.

Accepting the $20 greenback he used to be fake, a store representative revealed it to police.

Mr Floyd had been living in Minneapolis for quite a long while in the wake of moving there from his local Houston, Texas. He had as of late been functioning as a bouncer in the city at the same time, similar to a large number of different Americans, was left jobless by the coronavirus pandemic.

Why has a US city gone up on fire?

Mr Floyd was a customary at Cup Foods. He was an amicable face, a lovely client who never raised any ruckus, the storekeeper Mike Abumayyaleh told NBC.

Be that as it may, Mr Abumayyaleh was not busy working upon the arrival of the occurrence. In announcing the dubious bill, his high school worker was simply following convention.

In a call to 911, made at 20:01, the worker told the administrator he had requested the cigarettes back however “he [Floyd] wouldn’t like to do that”, as per a transcript discharged by specialists.

The representative said the man seemed “tipsy” and “not in charge of himself”, the transcript says.

Not long after the call, at around 20:08, two cops showed up. Mr Floyd was sitting with two others in a vehicle left around the bend.

In the wake of moving toward the vehicle, one of the officials, Thomas Lane, pulled out his weapon and requested Mr Floyd to show his hands. In a record of the episode, examiners don’t clarify why Mr Lane figured it important to take out his firearm.

Mr Lane, examiners stated, “put his hands on Mr Floyd, and hauled him out of the vehicle”. At that point Mr Floyd “effectively opposed being cuffed”.

Once bound, however, Mr Floyd got consistent while Mr Lane clarified he was being captured for “passing fake cash”.
