The location in which George Floyd was murdered by the Minneapolis Police Department has since been transformed into a memorial. The zone, regarded as "George Floyd Square," is filled with memorial tributes to Floyd. Residents from the neighborhood maintain that the streets remain barricaded off in order to protect the area from traffic.
