George Floyd death homicide, official post-mortem declares

George Floyd death homicide, official post-mortem declares

Washington, June 2(UNI) The death of George Floyd, which triggered widespread protests across the US, has been declared a homicide in an official post-mortem examination on Tuesday.
The 46-year-old suffered a cardiac arrest while being restrained by Minneapolis police, the report found.
It listed Mr Floyd's cause of death as "cardiopulmonary arrest complicating law enforcement subdual, restraint, and neck compression".
Meanwhile, President Donald Trump vowed to use the military to end the unrest.
A video showing a white police officer continuing to kneel on Mr Floyd's neck even after he pleaded he could not breathe has reignited deep-seated anger over police killings of black Americans.
The official post-mortem examination of Mr Floyd by the Hennepin County Medical Examiner's office also recorded evidence of heart disease and recent drug use. It said he suffered the cardiac arrest "while being restrained by a law enforcement officer" on 25 May.
The findings were released shortly after those of a private examination that was carried out by medical examiners hired by the Floyd family.
