Tense protests over the death of George Floyd and other police killings of black people grew Saturday across the US.
The protests began in Minneapolis following Floyd's death Monday after a white police officer pressed a knee on his neck until he stopped breathing.
Derek Chauvin, the officer who held his knee to Floyd’s neck, was arrested Friday and charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. 
But many protesters are demanding the arrests of the three other officers involved.
