MINNEAPOLIS (FOX 9) - Newly obtained surveillance video shows the moments before 46-year-old George Floyd was pinned to the ground by Minneapolis police officers.
Surveillance video from a nearby restaurant, Dragon Wok, captured the initial moments of Floyd's encounter with officers Monday evening.
At about 8:30 p.m. Monday, officers responded to the intersection of East 38th Street and Chicago Avenue South on a report of forgery. When they arrived, they located a suspect in a vehicle, later identified as Floyd.
The video shows two vehicles parked outside as two officers approach one of the cars and ask everyone to step out. Two people exit from the passenger side, while Floyd is taken out by another officer on the driver's side.
Floyd is brought to the sidewalk where an officer sits him down.
