Riots broke out in Minneapolis nearly two months ago, following the death of George Floyd, and a charred body was discovered in the remains of a local pawn shop that was set ablaze by rioters. The man who died suffered thermal injury and police say they have a suspect, Montez Terrill Lee, who was charged with setting fire to the building. Lee was caught on video pouring liquid form a metal container throughout the pawn shop. If the death of the unidentified victim is ruled a homicide, it will be the second fatality resulting from the Minneapolis riots, and the 36th in the city so far this year, compared to 18 murders int he city for the entire year in 2019. -GEG
