Protestors from around the area gathered in front of the Horizon West home of former Minnesota police officer Derek Chauvin to protest the death of George Floyd in a demonstration Friday, May 29.
Chauvin, who was not at the home and arrested earlier in the day in Minneapolis, has become the center of unrest after a video surfaced of him placing a knee on the neck of Floyd while arresting him. Floyd later died at a hospital.
About 200 protestors marched their way around the neighborhood — holding up signs and chanting Floyd's name in unison — while Orange County Sheriff's deputies watched in silence. Aside from the front door and side of the house being vandalized with graffiti, the protests remained peaceful.
