Police and rescue workers swarm the intersection outside Lloyd D. George Federal Courthouse, where shots were fired late Monday, June 1, 2020, in downtown Las Vegas. Police were in the area for a protest over the death of George Floyd, a Minneapolis man who died in police custody on Memorial Day.
Joined by several of Nevada’s top black leaders, Gov. Steve Sisolak on Friday called on lawmakers and citizens alike to listen to communities of color who are “crying out” for an end to racism in society. He said the killing of George Floyd stems from “decades of systemic inequality.”
