Crowd Gathers for George Floyd Vigil at Cadman Plaza in Brooklyn

After days of consecutive protests, a crowd gathered at Cadman Plaza Park in Brooklyn, New York, for a memorial service to honor George Floyd on Thursday, June 4, local media reported.

Floyd died after a Minneapolis Police Department officer knelt on his neck for more than eight minutes while he was being arrested on May 25.

Floyd’s younger brother Terrence lives in Brooklyn and attended the gathering, according to reports. Terrence Floyd was set to lead the protesters across the Brooklyn Bridge after addressing the crowd at Cadman Plaza.
