At least 40 people were arrested as Black Lives Matter protesters gathered in Union Square after the death of George Floyd. Dozens of people started gathering Thursday evening in Manhattan as rioters turned violent in Minneapolis, calling for the four officers involved in Floyd’s arrest to be charged in his death. Some of the protesters in Union Square scuffled with police and even threw bottles before moving further south near City Hall. One officer was injured when someone threw a trashcan, but the officer is expected to be OK.
