US protests: At least 13 people killed, 10,000 arrested as protests continue across the US

The death toll from the ongoing protests across the US continues to rise, with more than a dozen deaths linked to the demonstrations.At least 13 people have died since the protests broke out following the death of George Floyd, who was filmed begging for air as former Minneapolis police officer, Derek Chauvin, pressed his knee into the 46-year-old’s neck.
More than 10,000 people have been arrested as protests against police brutality and racism have given way to widespread looting, arson and violent clashes between police and demonstrators.
Many of the people killed have been African-Americans, compounding the tragedy for black families to lose more members of their community amid the unrest.
Multiple cities, including New York, Washington DC, Los Angeles and Chicago, have introduced curfews in a bid to stop the violence.
Along with the alarming death toll, dozens of people have been injured in the protests, with demonstrations showing no signs of stopping.
The circumstances surrounding many of the deaths are still being investigated, but this is what we know so far:
A 43-year-old African-American man is believed to be the first person to have died since the protests flared up.
Calvin L Horton Jr was fatally shot outside a pawn shop last week, with the owner of the shop arrested over his death.
Police say they are investigating the circumstances of the killing, including whether it was related to protests in the neighbourhood.
The shop was described as having been significantly damaged during the unrest.
Barbecue restaurant owner, David McAtee, was killed on Monday as police and the National Guard tried to clear a crowd from a parking lot near his business.
The 53-year-old African-American man, who was known for providing free meals to police, was shot and killed after officers reportedly heard gunshots and fired into the crowd.
Louisville’s police chief was fired this week after it came to light that officers involved in the shooting failed to activate their body cameras.
On Tuesday, the police department released surveillance footage they claimed shows McAtee firing a gun from the door of his barbecue shop as the situation unfolded.
The video shows McAtee raising his arm past his doorway, but his hand is blocked from camera view. After he’s struck by a bullet, he stumbles back inside, drops a gun and falls to the ground.
However, interim police chief Robert Schroeder acknowledged that the reason McAtee allegedly fired his gun remains unclear. When asked if the video showed the 53-year-old firing at police, Schroeder said “we don’t know”.

No one has been arrested.

A 22-year-old woman was shot on Monday while leaving a protest outside a Walmart.
Italia Kelly was getting in a car with a friend to leave after the protest started to get out of control when she was hit by a bullet.
The circumstances surrounding her death are still unclear and no arrests have been made.
“She was always smiling, always laughing. That’s why it’s so sad that she was taken in such a violent way,” her aunt, Amy Hale said.
“That is not Italia. She was the bright, bubbly big personality in the room.”
