Haitians joined thousands of protesters who flooded the streets of Flatbush and other nearby Brooklyn neighborhoods to protest the killing of George Floyd, an unarmed black man who died at the hands of Minneapolis police over Memorial Day weekend.

The law enforcement presence in the neighborhood was heavy, and protesters voiced their frustration at times by throwing water bottles and other projectiles at police.
