Four police officers have been sacked in Minneapolis for their involvement in the death of a black man.

The deceased was stopped at a checkpoint and held down with a knee on his neck even as he said “I can’t breathe,”

The FBI is now probing the matter which sparked outrage across the US after a video showing the incident went viral.

Mayor Jacob Frey condemned the incident and said that the technique used by the officers to pin George Floyd’s head to the ground was against the department regulations.

The incident took place on Monday evening when the officers responded to a call about an alleged forgery and found the suspect sitting inside a car.

The man later identified as Floyd was spotted by two officers, who claimed that the suspect “physically resisted” them when they asked him to get out.

According to police officers handcuffed him, who “appeared to be suffering medical distress.” Police added that the man died at a hospital after a few hours.
