A massive mural to George Floyd, who died while in the custody of Minneapolis police, was destroyed on Tuesday after being hit by lightning.
As Fox News reports:
Photos of the destruction show part of the brick wall reduced to rubble, with fragments of mural still remaining on the wall along its border.

The piece, titled “Take a Breath,” was created by local artist David Ross about one year ago in honor of Floyd, who was murdered in Minneapolis last Memorial Day by police officer Derek Chauvin.
Ross said he received threats over the mural and speculated the destruction could have been caused by vandalism and not lightning.
