A black man has died in Minneapolis police custody after video shared online from a bystander showed a white officer kneeling on his neck during his arrest as he pleaded that he couldn’t breathe.

His death, which occurred Monday night after a struggle with police officers, was under investigation by the FBI and state agents.

Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey said at an early morning news conference that what he saw on the video posted online was “horrible” and “completely and utterly messed up.”

Officers were called about 8 p.m. Monday to investigate a report of a forgery at a business, according to police spokesman John Elder. Police found the man, believed to be in his 40s, matching the suspect’s description in his car.

“He was ordered to step from his car. After he got out, he physically resisted officers,” Elder said in a statement. “Officers were able to get the suspect into handcuffs and noted he appeared to be suffering medical distress.”

The man, who was not identified, was taken by ambulance to Hennepin County Medical Center where he died a short time later, police said. The name of the officer seen kneeling on his neck wasn’t immediately released.

The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension has joined the FBI in its investigation. All body camera footage has been turned over to the BCA, which investigates most police shootings and in-custody deaths.

The officers involved have been put on paid administrative leave, per department protocol.

    THOSE THAT LOOK UNDER THE SURFACE START PETITIONS TO HOLD THE STATE LIABLE FOR DAMAGES FOR ALL HARM DONE TO ITS CITIZENS IN MINNESOTA BY ALL CITIES AND COUNTY'S WHICH ARE THE PARTIES TO CHARGE FOR DAMAGES

  2. I think America needs to start takein matters in to our own hands. Find out witch cops have complaints against them and take action.I see so many people laying back doing nothing. How can I stand there while someone is begging for his life.

  3. what officials have not mentioned about this killer cop is the fact that he had been fired from the Cleveland police force for nearly the same reason at some point prior to being hired by the Minneapolis Police. On
    Thisvery dangerous rogue cop lied on his application on the Minneapolis Police Force applications that are necessary to conduct service.
    How is it that the Minneapolis Police department miss this huge discrepancy and problem..
    The other item about this rogue cop and all other rogue cops is that there is no way to track their movements or there employment whereabouts or history.. there needs to be a mandated tracking system for cops who have been fired from previous similar jobs in order to keep the public safe. From these rogue killer cops.. there's much more to think about when it comes to hiring individuals to become enforcement. The localities that hire these individuals are sorely lacking in the tracking of these individuals

  4. Then Satan Jr , grabs his head and takes a mental self fee like a hunter dose his kill… Trophy… that's something that needs to be investigated

  5. The black police officer is a puppet. If he was real he should be speaking the truth Instead of trying to be politically correct and Collaborating with the ones pull in the strings.

  6. What is there to investigate, the man was gaspin for air but still that moron stuck his knee on the deceased’s neck. That police officer should be charged with murder which is life imprisonment…. Black is just a colour, In general we are all Human Beings. #BlackLivesMatter..
