Governor Walz of Minnesota has just announced that he is putting Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison in charge of the George Floyd case, replacing Hennepin County prosecutor Mike Freeman. Ellison will now lead the criminal prosecution in the case, assisted by Freeman. The governor stated that this change was at least partly due to a request from Floyd's family. This is an evolving story.

In the ongoing press conference, the incident on the Interstate today where a semi-truck went into the crowd of protesters was also discussed.  Governor Walz announced that the semi driver has been released from the hospital and is now in police custody.
