(FOX NEWS) – The Justice Department said Thursday morning that it has made the federal investigation into George Floyd’s death a “top priority” and assigned experienced prosecutors to investigate the killing of the Minneapolis black man by a white police officer.

It has also promised a “robust” probe by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, as another night of protests, rioting, and looting gripped Minneapolis.

Floyd, 46, died Monday night after being handcuffed and pinned to the ground by Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin.

Chauvin, along with three other police officers involved in the incident, Thomas Lane, Tou Thao, and J. Alexander Kueng, were fired from the force Tuesday.

On Wednesday, Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey demanded the arrest of Chauvin, the police officer seen on camera kneeling on Floyd’s neck as he struggled to breathe.
