A BLM activist ‘medic’ for the ‘autonomous zone’ said that she heard what sounded like “500 gunshots” Saturday night during her shift. Residents blame gang violence, BLM activists, many of whom are from out of state, and protests as the primary cause of the crime. The National Guard has been deployed to the city.
Floyd’s autopsy showed that he had 3 times the lethal dose of fentanyl in his system. Fentanyl overdose causes slowed breathing and Floyd was complaining that he could not breathe long before he was held on the ground by officer Chauvin. The autopsy revealed no evidence that he died from asphyxiation.
