MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — One week after George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis police custody ignited unrest across the country, his brother visited his memorial site and called for peace.

Early Monday afternoon, Terrence Floyd arrived at the spot of his brother’s death on 38th and Chicago.

There, WCCO’s Kate Raddatz reports that a peaceful crowd kneeled as he arrived at the memorial. Chants of “peace on the left, justice on the right” and “Floyd” were heard, with Terrence leading the group.

Terrence asked people to protest but to stop destroying their communities.

“My brother moved her from Houston,” said Terrence. “I know he would not want you all to be doing this.”

Instead, he asked people to get out and vote, educate themselves and demand justice peacefully.

Memorial service for George Floyd is scheduled for Thursday in Minneapolis. Other memorials are being planned in North Carolina and Houston, Texas.
